We Tram Melbourne: 16SEP06

When we think of Melbourne we think of trams, the signature of our great city. We have the largest tram network in the world and it is still growing, long may it continue. I love taking pics of our wonderful trams and I hope that you enjoy the pics just as much as I enjoyed taking them. Happy Friday everybody :)

Absolutely love trams, I often think civilisation ends at the point when you can no longer see trams on the streets.

We did well in keeping our network going, but wish we kept at least one street running cable trams.

Lonsdale street with cable trams, now we have buses instead.

I collect, therefore I am.

LOL I agree :) there is definitely room for lines to be extended and provide some of the soulless suburbs with character and a little bit of soul ;) Re-instate the Lonsdale trams and build a bus interchange on the outer edge of the CBD - Voila, problem solved.

Connecting ideas, places and people. #ohyesmelbourne

Richard Tomlinson , University of Melbourne In the first article reviewing The Conversation’s many articles on housing issues, the commentary about fiscal and supply-side issues was consistent. The same is not true for affordable housing due to the diversity of affordability issues.

Once again Melbourne has turned it on for the spectacular cultural juggernaut that is White Night. A crowd of around 600,000 took part in the all night festival of projections, performances, artworks and installations. Stealing the show again this year was the extraordinary projections upon the Royal Exhibition Building.

35 Spring Street has been anointed as one of Melbourne's elite high density residential projects. Developer Cbus Property is rightfully making note of the project's completion, with Planning Minister Richard Wynne recently officially opening the $350 million development. The project has drawn inspiration from equivalent park-front projects in New York, and holds views over Treasury Gardens that can never be built out.
