Maintaining public transport facilities is an important part of helping a city retain easy travel options. This is especially true as the infrastructure begins to get on in years, like the tram lines in Brunswick East.
A recent release from the Moreland Council has outlined the upcoming plans to renew the tram tracks on Lygon Street in the city, which could be great news for residents of real estate in Brunswick.
These tracks are over 50 years old, making now the perfect time to take another look at their integrity and undertake work to ensure they remain a strong, viable option for public transport in the Melbourne suburb.
Preliminary work will be started on the tracks on 2 May, before the real brunt of the repairs get underway on 12 May. These will continue for 24 hours each day until the projected finish date of 18 May.
After this, the tracks should be in fantastic operating order. During this time, there are anticipated complications for Routes 1 through 8, although these will be announced closer to the beginning of the repairs.
This could be wonderful news for regular public transport users in Brunswick, knowing that the tram rails are being upgraded for residential safety and to help ensure longevity for the infrastructure.
