A new accessible tram stop in Flemington Road at Boundary
Road opened to passengers on Monday 30 July 2012.
The opening of Stop 22 provides the growing community of
tram passengers with improved access to trams at this busy
interchange with the Flemington Bridge train station.
Tram passengers on Route 59 are already benefiting from
the $10million dollar transport improvement project on Mt Alexander
Road at Flemington and Travancore.
This is a growing community hub and while the new platform
stops provide safer, easier access to trams they also make for a
more people-friendly environment with new shelters, seating and
lighting for passengers who are waiting for trams.
Tram passengers heading to the city can expect improved
travel times through Travancore, and motorists will also experience
the benefits of these improvements via the use of a new dedicated
right turn lane to Boundary Road and improvements to the
intersection with CityLink.
Bicycle lanes, a new entrance to the Flemington Community
Centre, new traffic signals at the Travancore development, new
pedestrian operated signals and bridge strengthening works at the
Moonee Ponds Creek Bridge have also been completed since December
2011 as part of these transport improvement works.
