Yarra Trams Network Changes May 2017

I was on a Route 16 tram to the city the other weekday. About 1 pm we pulled into the Domain Interchange just behind a city-bound Route 58 tram. About 15 - 20 passengers got off the 58 and boarded the 16, leaving 1 or 2 on the 58. That was a winner of an idea!

Does anyone know why there have been D2s on Route 6 recently?

Location: #6 / Glen Waverley line
D2s are now running because 6 is now shared beteeen Malvern and Brunswick depots.

One thing I've noticed is the number of B2s has dropped already since the extended route came into effect. Started off seeing them regularly, now not quite as often.

Am I right in saying Route 6 is now completely gone?

How was route 6 serviced in terms of the depot?

Route 6 has been extended from Melbourne University to Moreland.

It is serviced by Malvern and Brunswick Depots

Just wondering, if the changes that have taken place in any way effect which depots get which trams when each new E2 comes online?

I can see from vicsig that both current in operations E2s are at Southbank, does that then push an E to Preston, which pushes a B2 to ???

Wasn't sure how it's been working.

The two in-service E2s are allocated to Preston Depot. These are operating on routes 11 and 86.

Good news, route 58 rerouted to run along Toorak Road with the new route built with new stops and priority tram lanes, note this is (under determination whether it is permanent or temporary) as part of early works of Melbourne Metro.

Bad news, poor planning means that in January 2018 Domain Interchange tram stop will be demolished after a few years getting built and only using cross interchanging feature for a few months.

I was under the impression that after Melbourne Metro tunnel works, the 58 will return to the original route via Park St and Domain Rd and the new route via Toorak Rd West will be abolished. This is due to happen in about 5 years time.

Actually we are both wrong, it was originally made temp then changed to permanent but now it is under investigation by Transport for Victoria. Seems to me that they have changed their minds again.

"As the network planner, Transport for Victoria will evaluate the new tram arrangements as part of its decision-making on whether trams return to Park Street and Domain Road following completion of the Metro Tunnel." Metro Tunnel Website
