Friday 7th November, Opening of Myer christmas windows, presumably Bourke Street closed to trams.
Sunday 9th November, Myer Santa Arrival, Bourke Street closed to trams.
Thursday 13th November, Aviva Investors Melbourne Mile, St Kilda Road southbound closed to traffic causing massive traffic build ups and incidental disruption to tram services.
Saturday 15th November, Myer christmas parade, Swanston Street, Bourke Street and Elizabeth closed to trams.
Sunday 30th November, Great Australian Fun Run, Swanston Street closed to trams.
What is the point of trams going into the city at all?
A friend tells me that Friday night trams were disrupted in Swanston Street due to cars being being driven into and unable to clear intersections at Latrobe Street, Lonsdale Street and Flinders Street with one tram sitting at Latrobe Street for ten minutes before the traffic cleared a bit.
City of Melbourne, who would co-operate with these constant disruptions, Yarra Trams, the operator of the trams, Victoria Police, whose reponsibility it is to control motor car traffic and prosecute illegal actions by motorists, City of Melbourne again and Vic Roads who are responsible for road design, all take a bow as either not caring and/or not being interested, or just plain incompetent.
