Rail link to Flinders U just the ticket

And it’s only $120m for half a klick

Flinders U is pleased that work on a rail-line to serve its campus and medical centre is steaming ahead. “The rail link enhances connectivity to Flinders University and will enable more students to conveniently access the wonderful learning opportunities,” VC Colin Stirling says.

Patient they are at Finders U. State and Commonwealth governments agreed in December 2015 extending the train from Tonsley Park was a good idea. Then the Commonwealth promised funding in May 2016. And in October 2017 the state parliament planning committee approved the project.

But what price getting everything right? Um, $35m actually. Back in 2017 project cost was quoted at $85m, now it is $120m – for half a km of track and station works.
