Flinders station tracks closer

The new Flinders Railway Station is one step closer to being ready to accommodate commuters, following the installation of the station canopy as part of the $141 million Flinders Link Project.

The Flinders Link Project will see the existing Tonsley railway line extended to the health and education precinct at Flinders University’s Bedford Park and the Flinders Medical Centre.

Work is now also well underway at Flinders Station Plaza, a new community space due to open when trains arrive at Flinders later this year. Station Plaza is the first small step in a series of developments to deliver our long-term vision for Flinders Village.

“This will be a safe and active space for passengers moving between the station and various Flinders locations, with food trucks, shade plantings and seating for students, staff and community to relax and enjoy throughout the day,” said Vice-Chancellor Professor Colin Stirling.

As construction work ramps up this week there are some changes to access and parking to be aware of:

  • Vehicle access to the parks at the far end of car park 12 will be maintained right throughout the project, but if you are driving through car park 12, please be extra cautious of the works and pedestrians.
  • From Monday 7 September a small bank of car parks on the eastern side of car park 12 will be closed to ensure pedestrian and worker safety.  This will also include relocation of the disabled access parks.
  • Additional parking is available at the far end of car park 12 and in nearby car park 21.
  • Pedestrians are encouraged to cross at the zebra crossings provided and use the gravel path or closed car parking bays to travel toward the hospitals.  For your safety, please avoid walking on the road, or along the gated perimeter of the construction site.
  • Over the next few weeks there will be some services enabling works in car park 21.  Please observe signage and changed traffic conditions while these works take place.

Thank you for your continued support as we progress this exciting new space. To keep up to date and find out more, you can visit the Flinders Village website.
