August 2017 performance results
Yarra Trams delivered 98.48 per cent of services in August with
82.89 per cent of services arriving on time. These results are
consistent with those from August 2016, with service delivery 0.33
per cent lower and punctuality 0.43 per cent lower.
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
Additional services were operated in August for a number of
special events including 11 AFL matches at the MCG and Etihad
Stadium, various expos and concerts, large open days at ACU, RMIT,
Monash, University of Melbourne and Rugby League & Union
matches at AAMI Park.
In August, Yarra Trams successfully delivered works on Lygon
Street, as part of our Power Supply Upgrade Project to accommodate
more new larger trams and increase network capacity. We also
delivered improvement works in the Southbank Depot area, including
the redesign of accessible Stop 125A on Route 109, in the
Fisherman's Bend area. Finally, post occupation works are ongoing
almost every night in the Toorak Rd West area (Domain Precinct) to
finalise full delivery scope, in preparation for MMRA works; these
works have no impacts on tram services.
