Construction has begun on a $125 million project to extend train service to the Flinders medical and education precincts in Adelaide.
The 650-metre extension will link the Flinders Medical Centre, Flinders University and Tonsley innovation precinct, south of the CBD, to the Adelaide Metro rail network.
The Flinders Link project, jointly funded by the federal and state governments, also includes construction of a shared pedestrian and cycling path.
"The federal Liberal and Nationals government has committed $62.5 million towards the $125 million project, which will benefit a large cross section of the community who access the Flinders education, innovation and health precinct," deputy prime minister Michael McCormack said on Friday.
The project is expected to provide an average of 55 full time-equivalent jobs until its completion, after the first sod was turned on Friday.
Flinders University's vice-president of corporate services, Mark Gregory, said Flinders Link will prove vital to the university in the future.
"The train connection will help us attract private capital for the development of the new Flinders Village," he said.
"This is very exciting for our university - for our students, researchers, and our communities here southern Adelaide."
Flinders Village will include a health research centre, a hotel, shops and student accommodation close to the campus.
