July 2017 performance results
Yarra Trams delivered 98.69 per cent of services in June with
83.88 per cent of services arriving on time. These results are
consistent with those from June, with service delivery 0.04 per
cent higher and punctuality 0.06 per cent lower in July.
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.
Additional services were operated in July for a number of
special events including 20 AFL matches at the MCG and Etihad
Stadium, Disney on Ice at Hisense Arena, 3 concerts at Margaret
Court Arena and rugby league and rugby union matches at AAMI
During July Yarra Trams built new tram infrastructure on
Toorak Road West and St Kilda Road to prepare for Metro Tunnel
works in the Domain precinct, South Yarra. The new tram
infrastructure allows Route 58 to travel further down St Kilda
Road, turning left at Toorak Road instead of Domain Road. Trams
also delivered tram track renewals at the junction of St Georges
Road and Miller Street in Preston. Both sets of work were completed
