Route 96 Nicholson Street tram stop upgrades

Closed: Consultation for this project has concluded. Thank you to everyone who has provided their feedback. From 1 to 15 September 2018, construction works will start on stops 11 to 15 along a 1.3km stretch of Nicholson Street between Carlton and Fitzroy.

Route 96 is being upgraded so everyone can catch the tram.

Stops at each end of Route 96 in East Brunswick and St Kilda are already fully accessible to passengers using wheelchairs, prams and other mobility aids. In September 2018, more tram stops will be upgraded to improve safety, accessibility and journey times for all passengers.

Building new tram stops along Nicholson Street from Carlton to Brunswick helps to provide public transport that is accessible to all tram users.

Benefits of this project include:

  • quicker tram travel times with a dedicated tram lane and evenly spaced stops
  • more efficient use of road to improve traffic flow
  • improved safety and passenger amenities at tram stops.

Community drop in sessions May 2018
In May 2018, PTV and Yarra Trams ran two community information sessions to explain the proposed upgrade works for tram stops 11 to 15 and 23 to 26. Local residents, businesses and passengers attended the community drop-in sessions to find out more about the changes to their local tram stop and provide feedback.

See the summary report for what we heard from the local community.
