QuoteA TRAIN from the city to Flinders University and the Flinders Medical Centre is set to become a reality, public transport-loving Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has announced..The Advertiser can reveal the Federal Government will partner with the State Government and will pay half the costs of the $85 million project.The Tonsley rail line will be extended 650m and will be partly elevated, with a pedestrian and cycle path alongside and a new station next to the FMC.The State Government has been calling for the Federal Government to pay half the cost. It estimates the train would cut travel time by up to 18 minutes by putting commuters on the fast track instead of buses.Travel time could be about 22 minutes from the city to the FMC when it is completed.The State Government has said the project will create around 75 jobs while the Federal Government said developments around the transport project could create almost 2000 jobs and drive more than $800 million in investment. The project will take up to two years to finish.
