Hopefully they are working on the design and approval to extend it the 100m to the corner of St Vincent St, even if they need to demolish some of the Courts Buildings.

construction should start in a few weeks
How do you know that just out of interest? I can't see anything on the website that suggests it's progressing - the status is still showing as 'in design' which has been the case since at least as far back as January 2018.
I was at the open day in March and, from memory, early works should commence in Q2 2019 and major works in Q3 or Q4 2019.

Additionally, the newsletter from February 2019 states:
Timing of works
Early investigations, survey, design work and stakeholder engagement have started, with site mobilisation and early works planned for the second quarter of 2019. The construction schedule is currently being developed and will be finalised once sufficient design has been completed.
However, you are right in saying that it is not listed in the Agency Statements for Planning, Transport and Infrastructure. We might need to follow up on this one.

Cheers Norman, am just really hoping to see construction start soon lest this appears on the Libs' public transport cuts radar.

Not that I'm hoping for a direct link from my house to Pirate Life or anything...

Apparently Cory Bernardi is thinking about rejoining the Libs.

Hopefully they just "say no".

Of course not :lol:


So..was that a yes its already budgeted for previously or a yes its going ahead because thats what they said at the open day?
If its already budgeted for I doubt theyd cut it, theyd probably try lump it together with the gawler line work as proof they invest in PT if (or when) Labor attack them on PT at the next state election.

Yes interesting as I didn’t know the Govt didn’t own it already. Any idea who owns it at the moment?
See the quote from InDaily in Llessur2002's post. Funds SA is the successor to the South Australian Superannuation Fund Investment Trust.

And some points from InDaily:
State Budget at a glance

COURTS

The State Government will spend more than $40 million on buying the Sir Samuel Way building in Victoria Square, eschewing fears of an unprecedented justice system budget cut.

Today’s state budget includes $43.5 million for the to buy the Sir Samuel Way Building, which houses the District Court, from Funds SA, ending the Courts Administration Authority’s obligation to pay rent on it.

According to the government, this will result in savings to the authority’s budget of $6 million each year.

Question for those in the know.

Given what appears to be a gap between work finishing and starting on the North south corridor projects, will the various projects announced cover that workforce in the interim?

There seems to be a heap of intersection and level crossing work. But do the same firms tender for these?

Looks like I was very wrong on that one. Sorry about that.

I tweeted some of the politicians and journalists yesterday about why the project was not in the budget, and today they released information about the "suspension" of the project.
