AWS is delivering training and inspection work for the major local ‘Flinders Link’ construction project until its completion in 2020.
According to DPTI, The Australian and South Australian Governments are jointly funding the $141 million Flinders Link Project to extend the existing Tonsley rail line to the Flinders Medical Centre, creating new connections to the health, innovation and education precincts. The project will include:
- A 650-metre extension of the current Tonsley rail line, including an elevated single track over Sturt Road, Laffers Triangle and Main South Road, linking Flinders Medical Centre and Flinders University to the passenger rail network;
- Construction of a new Flinders Station and removal of the existing Tonsley Station; and,
- An integrated shared pedestrian/cycle path adjacent the rail line from the new ramp located at the corner of Sturt Road and Birch Crescent to the new Flinders Station.
AWS and welder training legend Barry Bennett has been keeping busy on this project. He is training and qualifying welders and inspecting the welding of the reinforcing steel work, ensuring the welding work is done to the highest safety and industry standards.
We will keep you up to date with the progress!
