Two new tram platform stops will be built on Queensbridge Street as part of a busy period of network upgrades being delivered by Yarra Trams on behalf of Public Transport Victoria.
Yarra Trams will install two pairs of raised platforms on Route 55, one near Crown Casino and another near City Road.
Raised platform stops offer a safer area for passengers to board and alight from trams, provide passenger facilities such as shelters and information screens, as well as making it easier for passengers to get on and off trams.
The installation of new tram platforms and track renewal on Queensbridge Street will be divided into two phases - the first platform stop at City Road was built on 9 May, while the main construction period is from 23 May to 29 May.
Earlier in the month, 57-year-old tram tracks on Lygon Street, Brunswick East will be renewed from 12 to 17 May to provide a smoother ride for passengers on Routes 1 and 8.
Two days of preliminary work will also take place during May on Blyth Street, East Brunswick in preparation for the construction of a new terminus later this year as part of the Route 96 Upgrade.
These projects will be followed on the Queen's Birthday weekend (6 to 8 June) by the renewal of tram tracks on Swanston Street at Federation Square, Melbourne's busiest tram stop, and between La Trobe and A'Beckett streets.
Meanwhile, community consultation has begun in relation to a proposed new platform stop outside the MCG on Wellington Parade.
This stop will improve access to the ground for passengers who use mobility aids, prams or have limited mobility, in addition to better safety and information.
