Toorak Terminus tram upgrade project
Thursday 2 July 2015
As part of the modernisation of Melbourne's tram network, Yarra Trams and Public Transport Victoria (PTV) are proposing to construct a new terminus and level-access platform stop on Toorak Road.
The new platform stop will replace the current combined kerbside tram stop and terminus located on the corner of Toorak Road and Glenferrie Road.
Why is the new platform stop and terminus being built?
The current Toorak Road terminus is the only unprotected terminus remaining on Melbourne's tram network.
A safety risk assessment completed by Yarra Trams ranks the terminus in the top ten hot spots/stops for severity, with vehicle-to-passenger near misses recorded on an almost daily basis.
It also doesn't allow for easy boarding and alighting for the elderly, people with prams or people with disabilities.
The new level-access platform and terminus will provide passengers with:
- Easier and safer access to trams
- Increased protection from road traffic
- Real-time passenger information
- Improved passenger amenity including shelters, seating and lighting
