Tram Super stops positive for traffic flow in Melbourne.
As recently reported Melbourne’s tram “super stops” have been designed to improve passenger safety and disability access but interestingly studies undertaken by Monash University have shown that they have also helped speed up commuting! Trams stopping in Melbourne can be affected by sharing the road with cars and the study found that the implementation of the super stops helped achieve superior tram travel times.
Civiltest is currently providing geotechnical investigations at various locations around Melbourne for the continued deployment of these stations.
