Glengowrie Tram Depot Upgrade project
The Government's commitment to the continued expansion of tram services necessitates the upgrade of the Glengowrie tram depot. The existing tram fleet of 11 Flexity-Classics and the H-class (heritage) trams is currently being increased by six Citadis trams. This significant increase in size of the main service fleet brings a need for increased stabling capacity, maintenance capability, and operational and staff facilities.
Upgrades have included a new stabling configuration, new tram and spray wash facilities, new storage sheds and a second tram lifting system to enabled simultaneous work on multiple vehicles including both types of contemporary trams.
Project time frame
January 2010 - January 2012
Apart of the State Government's $2 billion investment in public transport.
