The tram terminus at Melville Road, Pascoe Vale South is getting an upgrade.

The new tram stop will make travelling by tram safer and easier for passengers who are vision impaired or using wheelchairs, prams or other mobility aids.

The upgraded stop includes:

  • a 33m platform that aligns with low floor trams for level access boarding
  • new customer information displays, shelter, seating, improved lighting and safety barriers
  • new signalised crossing linking pedestrians to the tram stop and shopping precinct
  • dual tracks to allow trams to turn around more efficiently
  • driver amenities including toilets
  • new wayfinding signs between the tram terminus and local bus stops
  • contribute to future running of newer, bigger trams on Route 58

Construction will take place from 14 to 22 February 2020. To facilitate this, preliminary works will happen in January 2020.

Route 58 connects locals and visitors with Melbourne CBD and tourist and cultural facilities like Melbourne Zoo, Queen Victoria Markets and the Shrine of Remembrance. It also connects with key health services such as the Royal Children’s Hospital, Royal Melbourne Hospital and the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.
