December 2015 performance results

08 January, 2016

Yarra Trams’ punctuality and service delivery for December were fairly consistent with the same time last year, with 98.52 per cent of timetabled services delivered and 81.65 per cent of these services arriving on time. The results were mainly affected by increased patronage in the lead up to Christmas, and third-party works and the widening of the Tullamarine Freeway which created increased traffic along some lines. Days of extreme heat also affected tram operations across the network. Final preparations for Night Network were completed for the successful launch on 1 January 2016. There is a strong focus on preparations in the lead up to further days of extreme heat.

November 2015 performance results

08 December, 2015

Yarra Trams’ punctuality and service delivery for November were comparable to 2014 performance, with severe weather, CBD rallies and service changes due to network upgrades all affecting performance across the month. Flooding on Thursday, 5 November caused slow road traffic and subsequent delays to trams, while a power cable falling on tram wires and debris washing onto tracks also presented challenges. A suspicious package at Southern Cross Station on Tuesday, 17 November disrupted some of our busiest lines for several hours, while a rally with 50,000 attendees on Friday, 27 November blocked services in the CBD in the early evening. Preparations are being finalised ahead of the introduction of Night Network services on 1 January and delivering a reliable service throughout the Christmas period.
