Rundle Mall is located in the north-eastern corner of the Adelaide Central Business District, in close proximity to the cultural and university precinct on North Terrace; the Rundle Street/East End retail and restaurant strip; and the Hindley Street entertainment strip.
North Terrace Tram Extension Project
The State Government has committed $80 million in funding for the first stage of the AdeLINK tram network to
the city’s East End, including the purchase of three additional trams.
This project will deliver a one-kilometre extension of the tram line along North Terrace, from King William Street to East Terrace, and a 350 metre extension north along King William Road to the Festival Plaza Precinct.
Stage 1: Early works - Ongoing
Stage 2: North Terrace - 1 to 16 October 2017
Stage 3: King William Road - 22 October to 6 November 2017
During this time, there will be traffic restrictions in place.
Stage 3: King William Road - 22 October to 6 November
Stage 3 will involve the installation of tram tracks along King William Road between North Terrace and the Adelaide Festival Plaza Precinct.
Stage 3 works will be undertaken from 22 October to 6 November 2017, with works occurring 24 hours a day.
Undertaking these works 24 hours a day will assist to minimise disruption. Construction of the Festival Plaza Precinct tram stop will occur after the Tour Down Under in January 2018.
During Stage 3 the right turn into Festival Drive will be temporarily removed.
The u-turn facility near the Festival Plaza will be permanently removed.
Traffic, pedestrians and cyclists
Traffic along King William Road will be restricted to two lanes in each direction for the duration of the works.
Access along King William Road footpaths will be maintained for the duration of Stage 3. The pedestrian crossing at the Festival Centre will be temporarily removed for the duration of the works.

During Stage 3, tram and bus services will not be affected.
