Southbank Boulevard: Green tramway opens

October 2018

TCL is pleased to be working with the City of Melbourne on the transformation of Southbank Boulevard.

The City’s vision to reduce the width of an unnecessarily wide road to create 2.5 hectares of new public open space is well underway with the boulevard now closed to traffic for construction.

The project will also introduce a unique green tram way, where groundcovers will be planted in the space between the tram tracks where concrete or bitumen would otherwise be.

More space for pedestrians and cyclists will also be provided along the route.
