Tram bridge or underground tunnel?

Private road mapping company Melway has included a proposed “underground tunnel” in Yarra’s Edge in one of its past Melbourne map editions.

On the map on street-directory.com.au, a website that uses Melway’s street maps, a pink dashed line is shown crossing the river at Yarra’s Edge.

The dashed line connects Collins Landing to Lorimer St and continues southwest into Port Melbourne and Fishermans Bend.

When zoomed in closer, the pink dash turns grey with a small text ­– “proposed alignment of underground connections to Collins St”.

The location of the dashed line across the Yarra River is consistent with the tram bridge proposed by the previous State Government, whereas Melway’s map legends show it is an “underground tunnel”.

When contacted by Docklands News, Melway said dashed lines referred to proposed roads or developments, however, the map used by street-directory.com.au was not the current edition.

On Melway’s website, the pink or grey dashed line in Yarra’s Edge and Port Melbourne is not included in the most recent map.

Melway said the edition used by street-directory.com.au went back a fair way and whatever was represented by the dashed line was “no longer a proposal”.
