State Budget Announcement of $50 Million to be allocated for the EastLINK Tram-line

This $50 million commitment to be announced in Thursday’s State Budget on 7th July, is very welcomed news! As our Lord Mayor Martin Haese said, the AdeLINK tram extension to the East End will underwrite the future development of the RAH site, support our local East End traders and provide greater city connections for residents, workers, students, tourists and visitors. Work will begin later this year.

Three new stops will be added in a one-kilometre extension of the city’s tram-line along North Terrace to the East End marking the beginning of EastLINK, which will eventually connect to Kent Town in the eastern suburbs.
