With the launch of a new car lift, the South Australian Government is opening up the possibility of a large-scale car lift for the city.
The lift service will be run by Jaguar Landrover Australia and the state government, the Herald Sun understands.
It is a significant step for the South Australia Government to offer car lifts in their cities.
The car lift will be similar to the one in Victoria and will be powered by the same electric motors that power most large car lifts.
It will be available in Adelaide and Melbourne.
It’s expected to be operational by the end of 2019.
The service will also provide access to car parks, the city’s CBD and public transport.
The first car lift to be built is expected to cost about $50,000 to build and run, with about $60,000 in maintenance and a $20,000 annual cost for the car.
The Adelaide car lift is expected be a two-storey structure, with a capacity of 100 people, and will cost about a third of that amount.
The Melbourne car lift would cost $100,000 and be capable of 200 people, with the cost of maintenance and maintenance upgrades about $10,000.
It was announced earlier this year that the Adelaide and South Melbourne car lifts would be built by Jaguar.
The new car lifts are part of a broader $15 billion investment by the state to create thousands of new jobs in the next 20 years.
The Government is also investing in new rail services and a new highway in the state.
The $30 million investment to build new rail links between the cities was announced this week.
“This is a major step forward for the state’s economy and it’s also a significant contribution to the South West Regional Regional Economic Strategy, which aims to deliver $200 million of infrastructure investment in the region by 2035,” SA Premier Jay Weatherill said.
“We will continue to invest in our region and create a new generation of jobs.”
Mr Weatherill is keen to see the car lift in South Australia, despite the economic slowdown.
“South Australia is on the road to recovery,” he said.
