The Flinders Link Rail Project is a 650m extension to the existing Tonsley rail line which joins the Flinders Medical Centre and Flinders University to the Adelaide metropolitan rail network.
The project featured the construction of an 520m elevated concrete viaduct. Its purpose was to carry the rail line over the new Main South Road Upgrade Project, to land at the new Flinders Station adjacent the existing Flinders Medical Centre facilities.
An exhaustive design, coordination and safety review process prepared the blueprint for an extensive foundation of civil works. This included CFA piling, precast panel retaining wall systems and an intricate network of steel box girder structural elements.
Successful completion of these milestones permitted the construction of an exacting rail infrastructure, including track slabs and high voltage electrical, signaling and train control systems. The new installation has been handed over to the rail authority compliant with all safety, service and operational objectives.
