In October 2013, the State Government announced a new tram network for Adelaide, known as AdeLINK. The network is featured in the State Government's Integrated Transport and Land Use Plan. AdeLINK proposes a new tram line along the inner northern suburbs, along with a tram line to Outer Harbor (to replace the existing heavy rail line).
In December 2015, the cities of Port Adelaide Enfield and Charles Sturt called on the State Government to construct a Light Rapid Transit (LRT) rail corridor, which links the existing Adelaide Entertainment Centre tram stop to Outer Harbor and West Lakes.
In February 2016, the State Government announced the preparation of a business case for the entire AdeLINK network. This was followed by a series of technical workshops and community open days.
Public interest in AdeLINK was boosted by the Lord Mayor's Light Rail Summit, led by Martin Haese in April 2016. In addition, the Mayors for AdeLINK group was formed, which includes Mayor Gary Johanson.
The State Government held community open days for ProspectLINK and PortLINK in late 2016.
