Flinders U train on track
Back in 2015 state and federal governments promised to extend a suburban rail line to Flinders U. Nothing much happened (apart from the project cost increasing from $85, to $120m) until April this year, when the SA Government said the project was set to start. And lo, it has – with the first sod being ceremonially turned on Friday.
The less than kilometre of track over a main road is a very big deal for Flinders, it will provide a train to campus. with a new health research complex, housing for 3000 international students, a hotel and retail to be built at the station.
