October 2017 performance results
Friday 10 November 2017
Yarra Trams delivered 98.47 per cent of services in October with
82.50 per cent of services arriving on time. Both of these results
represent a slight decrease compared to October 2016.
During October Yarra Trams successfully completed tram improvement works on Nicholson Street and Moreland Road in Coburg and Brunswick, and at Royal Park. These works involved the replacement of old tracks and overhead wires, and delivered a smoother road surface for cyclists and tram passengers.
In October Yarra Trams operated additional services to help get our passengers to events across Melbourne including soccer and rugby league matches at Etihad Stadium and AAMI Park, as well as university exams at the Showgrounds and the Cox Plate at Moonee Valley Racecourse.
Trams share the city's roads and traffic congestion is the leading factor affecting tram performance, which is why we continue to work closely with our on-road partners including VicRoads to find ways to make journey times more reliable.
Yarra Trams manages the network in real-time to adjust to the road conditions and help people to safely get to where they want to go.
