More trams for commuters

11 Feb 2014

More trams for commuters Image

An increasing demand for public transport to and from Docklands saw an extra 1200 tram services per week added last month.

Public Transport Victoria and Yarra Trams added the extra services on a range of routes, starting from Australia Day.

The route 75 tram, which originally travelled along Spencer St to Flinders St, will now travel along Harbour Esplanade, terminating at Etihad Stadium.

When combined with route 70 this will mean a tram to Flinders St leaving from Docklands every five minutes.

A further 26 weekday services have also been added to route 11, which travels to Victoria Harbour via Collins St.

More trams will now be running on the route during peak morning and evening periods, with services from West Preston to Victoria Harbour, via Collins St, now operating every 8 minutes.

When combined with route 48, this means a service every four minutes along Collins St to Docklands.  The  $3.5 million Collins St tram extension work is also complete with tram routes 11, 48 and 31 now operating from the Dock Square terminus.

The 450-metre extension includes new tram tracks leading to a double track tram terminus at the newly created intersection of Collins St and Bourke St.

The tram track extension is part of Lend Lease’s $20 million Collins St road, pedestrian and tram network extension project and will provide a transport link to the emerging Dock Square.

At the launch of the extension Premier Denis Napthine said Docklands was one of the fastest growing residential and commercial hubs in Melbourne.

“This investment in public transport infrastructure and services is an example of how the Coalition Government is delivering extended and more reliable services, where and when commuters need them.”
