From Sunday 19 December, routes 11, 12, 19, 48, 57, 58, 59, 75, 78, 82, 96 and 109 will have new timetables as we introduce E-Class trams on Route 58.
Tram substations contain electrical equipment to convert the local power supply into the voltage needed to run the tram network.
From 10pm Friday 21 January to 5am Saturday 29 January, Glenferrie Road, between Toorak Road and Riversdale Road in Kooyong will be closed for essential bridge upgrade and tram track renewal works. Buses will replace Route 16 trams during this time.
We’re upgrading Stop 4, William/Collins Street, to create raised side platforms, which will be fully integrated with Melbourne’s expanding fleet of low-floor trams.
The Victorian Government is investing $1.3 million to upgrade the bridge over the Merri Creek on High Street in Northcote. This work is being completed as part of the Securing the Safety and Productivity of Victoria’s Road Network program.
We're upgrading Melbourne's tram network to deliver accessible transport and meet Melbourne's future transport needs. Route 58 has been selected as the next route for E-Class trams as it services key employment areas including the Parkville medical precinct, CBD, South Yarra and population growth areas.
We’ve upgraded South Yarra Station, one of Melbourne’s busiest stations, as we also prepare our network for the Metro Tunnel. The final stage of work to construct a level-access tram stop on Toorak Road was completed in June 2021. Finishing works involving planting and paving will take place in early 2022.
We’re building a new tram power substation in Pascoe Vale South to meet Melbourne’s future transport needs and the increased demands on the tram network. This includes the roll-out of more E-class trams, which are our biggest and most accessible. To do this we need to make sure there is enough power to keep the network operating smoothly, reliably and safely.
As part of the Victorian Government’s $328.4 million investment into critical public transport and road maintenance upgrades to create and support more than 600 jobs, we’re delivering a range of safety and operational improvements across Melbourne’s iconic tram network.
