With the $190 million redevelopment of New Preston Depot on St.
Georges Road now complete, tram operations previously conducted at
the East Preston Depot on Plenty Road have been moved to the new
workshops. As a result, the East Preston Tram Depot is no longer
operational and has since been decommissioned.
The removal of tram Stop 46 on Plenty Road (in front
of the old East Preston Tram Depot) will occur between Tuesday 11
October and Friday 14 October 2016.
There is currently an inbound and outbound tram stop located at
the entrance of the old East Preston Tram Depot. This was
previously used by Route 86 tram drivers when changing shifts. With
the transition of East Preston Depot operations to the New Preston
Depot, these stops are no longer required.
Stop 46 on Plenty Road is in very close proximity of
adjacent stops. It is approximately 100 metres to the outbound Stop
45, and 80 metres to the inbound Stop 45. Passengers currently
using Stop 46 will be catered for at the existing Stop 45 at Bell
There will be no tram service disruptions during the
closure of Stop 46, Plenty Road. Work will be conducted at night
after last tram services and before first tram services resume in
the morning. Trams will not stop at Stop 46, inbound or outbound
after last tram service on Monday 10 October 2016.
Lane closures will be in place around the work zone at Stop 46,
Plenty Road. One lane of traffic will still be open to allow for
through traffic. Signage and traffic controllers will be in place
to guide motorists around the work site.
