Disappearing tram stops on Elizabeth Street

Earlier this week Yarra Trams closed another tram stop in the Melbourne CBD – this time it was stop 6 at Elizabeth and Franklin Streets. This isn’t the first stop to disappear on this street – so why did they go?

Northbound B2.2118 still has to stop at closed Franklin Street stop because of the traffic lights

Another Melbourne CBD tram stop removed

Over the past few years Yarra Trams have been closing tram stops all over the Melbourne CBD, as they embark on a program of building new platform stops that provide level access to the modern fleet of low floor trams. The most recent removal is stop 121 at the corner of Bourke and Spencer Streets, used by trams on routes 75 and 86.
