The tram extension down North Terrace might have been a total mess and financial blunder, some could say the same about the Entertainment Centre extension. Gawler electrification might only be happening now after a decade since it was first announced. But you know what? At-least Labor tried.
Not to crap on Labor’s other transport developments but I don’t think the North Terrace tram extension is the best example. Irrespective of the problems and delays it encountered, it was given the go-ahead purely to be a ribbon-cutting drawcard immediately before the election. Mighty convenient that it was originally planned to open a mere 2 months before the election...

Labor obviously cares more about public transport than the Libs, but if they actually cared about the North Terrace tram it would’ve been done long before it was.

I hope this is the correct thread , the Tonsley station has been completely removed and the track and overhead wiring has been cut back to the Clovelly park station . pictures 11/812019.
(1) site of former Tonsley station.
(2) looking in the other direction to Sturt Rd there is a piling rig and associated crane. There is no work yet in the triangle between South Rd /Sturt road or university drive.

This is supposed to be open when the south Rd upgrade is finished. Click on pictures for bigger.
