    No Commitment to a Tram Service for Fishermans Bend

    Recently, the Minister for Public Transport, the Hon. Ben Carroll MP, released the Victorian Government’s Melbourne Tram Plan. The Minister’s statement is shown here.

    Unfortunately, there was no mention of the proposed tram service for Fishermans Bend. This was promised by the Victorian Government in the 2018 Fishermans Bend Framework.

    The proposed route for the Fishermans Bend service was an extension of the Collins St/Docklands route 11 service to Fishermans Bend. The service would have a line into the northern area (known as the Employment Precinct) and a service along Plummer Street to service the southern area.

    The BCNA has supported the early provision of transport services into Fishermans Bend since inception of discussions about development of the area. Services are required to encourage development and new residents and to ease congestion on nearby roads. More information about the issues and the significance of a tram service was explained in a recent article in The Age.
