I turned on a Twitter feed for Yarra trams a few weeks ago and this by far the worst day since. I also heard that City Link inbound from the east was closed for a few hours, which no doubt affected route 8 with extra traffic in Toorak Road. If the tram system was like this daily, I would be turning my phone off.
7.18 St Kilda Road disruption cleared (it was a car accident blocking north bound trams into the city, so the wireless informed me. We later saw the sand covering spilt oil)
9.19 Disruption to routes 3 and 16 cleared. Trams running again in Carlisle Street. (I don't know about that one. Would have been diverted via Dandenong Road but there was more to come)
11.46 Routh 3, 16 and 67 diverting via Dandenong Road in both directions due to damaged overhead wires at Chapel and Carlisle.
12.13 Route 19 trams terminating at Bell Street due to car accident blocking tracks.
12.29 Route 19 trams back to normal.
12.42 Route 67 back to normal. 3 and 16 still diverting via Dandenong Road.
12.43 Route 1 and 8 disrupted by a defective tram in Lygon Street.
1.18 Route 1 and 8 back to normal.
1.45 Route 3 and 16 back to normal but St Kilda Road south bound trams diverting via Sturt Street and Kingsway due to a defective tram. (no all clear about this one)
4.00 Route 109 and 112 diverting via Latrobe Street due to accident in Macarthur Street.
4.53 Route 109 and 112 back to normal.
Tuesday morning, massive disruption to Swanston Street trams because of a union picket, yet Twitter has remained silent.
