The final plans for the new rail extension from Tonsley to Flinders Medical Centre are available on the Planning Commission website for the next day or so. The plans include the proposed adjacent pedestrian cycle path which takes you over both Sturt Road and South Road. I have no idea whether these plans have changed since earlier versions were published last year.
The Planning Commission has a nasty habit of pulling documents off their website quite quickly, so download now if you are interested: https://www.saplanningcommission.sa.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0...
There are other documents here: https://www.saplanningcommission.sa.gov.au/scap/agendas_minutes
The Planning Commission will be dealing with the development application at a closed hearing tomorrow. The final decision is made by the Planning Minister, but there is no doubt it will be approved.
I've haven't been active on Adelaide Cyclists for a while, so apologies if this is repeating information others have posted.

A good find, thank you.
This was considered by the State Planning Commission and the Dept was sent back to do some more work. Here is the extract from the minutes. The formatting is a bit off, so try this link if you prefer: https://www.saplanningcommission.sa.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0...
Thank you Mark - if you have any other tips like this I would also love to hear about it email@example.com
Another recent issue with DPTI is about the King William South Tram project. We asked to meet early in the piece to talk about including a separated bikeway but were not given a meeting. We were however told their would be consultation - to date we have seen nothing is the way of public comment, or that they have sought feedback on the proposal from any cycling groups. What we have heard is that they are getting on with building whatever they have planned which is basically another painted white line.
