February 2015 performance results
Friday 6 March 2015
Yarra Trams ran 78.99 per cent of services on time in February 2015, with a service delivery of 98.77 per cent.
February 2015 was a challenging month for tram performance due to a high number of special events, major tram improvement projects, traffic congestion and third party incidents.
Major infrastructure upgrades included:
- building a new level access stop on Elgin St, Carlton
- tram power upgrade work on St Georges Rd, Thornbury
- track renewal on Toorak Road, Toorak.
These projects caused a total of two weeks disruption to trams on the busy Swanston Street and St Kilda Road corridor, as well on Collins Street.
Significant special events included:
- Pride March
- St Kilda Festival
- ICC World Cup
- White Night.
Yarra Trams and PTV are committed to continually improving tram performance to offer a world class service to our passengers.
