Another span has gone up, pretty sure it's the one next to the cop shop, but I had a bad angle from South Rd so it could also have been the Sturt Rd crossing

Wouldn’t the spans be numbered in the direction of the track 🤔

Also can confirm I saw orange girders up next to the cop shop adjacent to Sturt rd

I work in the Mark Oliphant building facing onto Flinders Dr.
The spans went up yesterday morning, and today they are slowly installing the base panels.

From AdelaideNow ... https://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/sou ... 94dde2576a

Crucial crossing of South Road completed to allow for rail link to Flinders University and hospital
New fly-through footage shows how massive steel bridge sections have been successfully placed over South Rd to prepare for the highly-anticipated Flinders link rail project.

This time-lapse film shows how workers seemingly effortlessly created a rail bridge over South Rd last weekend.

https://youtu.be/Hj2vsqW8X4o

Giant sections of bridge were lowered into place, one of the most significant sections of the Tonsley rail line extension to Flinders University and Flinders Hospital.

Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government Stephan Knoll announced the successful completion of the bridge works today after safety checks.

“The Flinders Link Project is well under way and is supporting around 55 local jobs,’’ he said.

“We are continuing to invest in public transport infrastructure and by extending this train line we will help connect the Flinders Medical and Education precinct with the city.

“This means people living in the southern suburbs will have better connectivity, from students, those needing to access Flinders Hospital and local residents who work in the city.”

But more is yet to be done in the 650m rail extension, which must include an elevated single track over Sturt Rd, Laffers Triangle and Main South Rd.

A new Flinders station will also be built, with the total project cost $141 million.

Piling work is currently being carried out along the length of the extension, starting on the western side of Main South Rd. This work will progressively move towards the northern end of the project site.

A total of 82 piles will support the new rail bridge and a further 65 will be installed for the elevated walkway. These are expected to be in place by the end of August.

This will make way for retaining walls, a ramp and the realignment of the track.

The project is scheduled for completion in mid-2020, with funding from the state and federal governments.

The extension will be critical to a new $1.5 billion housing development to be built at the university.

What is the date of the paywalled Adelaide Now article? The timelapse video is the the installation of the first span from 6-8 December.

The references to the piling work are rather odd. They imply this work will be be continuing through to August 2020, whereas the piling was surely completed in 2019, prior to the casting of the support piers.
