As part of the modernisation of Melbourne's tram
network, the State Government is investing more than $1.1 billion
into the manufacture and purchase of 70 new E-Class trams and
E-Class trams currently service Routes 11 and
96, and will soon be in operation on Route 86. To ensure E-Class
trams are able to safely and efficiently operate on Route 86 and
its associated diversions, Public Transport Victoria (PTV) and
Yarra Trams are performing a number of enabling works.
To allow E-Class trams to fit within the safety zone
areas of Stop CC2 (corner of Spring and Bourke Streets) and Stop
119 (corner of La Trobe and Spencer Streets), a number of minor
civil works will take place. These include the removal of the
existing concrete prow; the installation of bluestone kerbs; the
installation of safety bollards; the extension of existing fencing;
and the completion of new line marking.
Works will be carried out between 8:00am Monday 26
September and 5:00am Thursday 29 September 2016. Works will be
carried out during the day and night throughout the work period
except for peak traffic times.
There will be no tram service disruptions during

Traffic controllers and signage will be in place to direct
motorists. Work areas will also be cordoned off with bollards to
ensure the safety of pedestrians..

and work crews is unavoidable but Yarra Trams will do all it can to
keep this to a minimum. The noisiest work will occur between 6am
