Melville Accessibility Improvements

Passengers on tram route 58 will benefit from more reliable services and improved accessibility along Melville Road.

Minister for Public Transport Melissa Horne and Member for Pascoe Vale Lizzie Blandthorn inspected the newly re-opened upgraded tram stop today, making it easier for passengers who need assistance to catch the tram at the end of the line.

The upgrade includes a new platform that aligns with low-floor trams for easier boarding, new customer information displays, more shelter, a seating area, improved lighting and safety barriers.

It has delivered brand new amenities for drivers and created an improved transport hub at the end of the line in Pascoe Vale South, connecting passengers with a range of services and shops they use every day. It will also help the gradual introduction of the E-Class trams.

Route 58 connects locals with the CBD and key health services such as the Royal Children’s Hospital, Royal Melbourne Hospital and the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.
