City Tram Extension

Update

The department is currently undertaking daytime works to finish the tram stops on North Terrace between 10am and 3pm to avoid any impact on morning or afternoon peak, requiring some temporary traffic restrictions. 

The City Tram Extension is now in its final stage of finishing works, with day and night works occurring. Works are expected to be completed by late April, when the commissioning of the line will occur, followed by driver training.

Funding 

The State Government has committed $80 million in funding for the first stage of the AdeLINK tram network to the city’s East End, including the purchase of three additional trams.

The Budget commitment will deliver a one-kilometre extension along North Terrace, from King William street to East Terrace and an extension along King William Road to the Adelaide Festival Plaza precinct.

The Adelaide City Council will contribute an additional $5 million to upgrade the public realm.

It will provide a new service to the bustling East End shopping, restaurant and tourism precinct, while further invigorating the city's cultural and education boulevard. It will also help to reactivate vacant sites, including key buildings along North Terrace.

The City Tram Extension is expected to support about 83 jobs during construction.

Background

The extension forms Stage One of the EastLINK, with future stages planned to the eastern suburbs through Kent Town. The extension also marks the first stage in the CityLINK loop around the CBD.

The extension will feature four new stops, one on King William Road servicing the Festival Plaza and three new stops along North Terrace servicing the museum and library precinct, universities and the Old Royal Adelaide Hospital Site.

The Government’s vision for the AdeLINK tram network has been endorsed as an Infrastructure Australia priority initiative following the State Government’s Integrated Transport and Land Use Plan.
