New changes to Docklands tram routes 48 and 70

If you regularly commute to and from Docklands then listen up! New changes to tram routes no. 48 and 70 have taken effect as of Sunday, 20th September 2009. Information sourced via Yarra Trams website below:

North Balwyn to Victoria Harbour, Docklands – via Collins Street

A revised Route 48 will boost tram services to Docklands via Collins and Spring Streets, starting 20 September 2009.

Route 48 which currently travels from North Balwyn to Waterfront City, Docklands via Flinders Street will instead travel via Spring Street and Collins Street to its new terminus at Victoria Harbour, Docklands.

This new service will provide a direct link between Victoria Harbour, Southern Cross Station, the heart of the CBD and the “Paris end” of Collins Street.

Route 48 services from North Balwyn will now turn right from Wellington Parade into Spring Street, left into Collins Street and continue via Collins Street West to Victoria Harbour, Docklands.

Collins Street Services

As well as Route 48, Collins Street will be serviced by Route 109 (Box Hill – Port Melbourne) and Route 112 (West Preston – St Kilda/Fitzroy Street). Route 31 (St Vincent’s Plaza – Collins Street West End) will no longer operate. Some Collins Street services (Routes 11 and 42) which formerly terminated at Collins Street West End will now continue to Victoria Harbour, Docklands.

Flinders Street Services

Routes 70 and 75 will operate in Flinders Street as well as a new shuttle service.

Changes to Route 70

Route 70 (Wattle Park – Bourke Street Docklands) which currently terminates outside the NAB building on Harbour Esplanade will be extended along Harbour Esplanade and Docklands Drive via NewQuay to its
new terminus at Waterfront City, Docklands. This will replace the Route 48 services via Harbour Esplanade and Docklands Drive to NewQuay and Waterfront City.

Full details of the changes to both Route 48 and Route 70 will be available on board trams and at tram stops.
