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

Development & Planning

A rush of planning applications either side of the festive break are cumulatively seeking to add to South Melbourne's robust development scene, with four major apartment projects lodged. City of Port Phillip will now assess the respective merits of the fresh applications, along with a handful of other noteworthy towers already at planning that when combined, would provide the popular suburb with thousands of new apartments.

Policy, Culture & Opinion

On 2 January 2017, it was reported that several popular eateries and bars in Footscray had been vandalised, including the perennially successful 8 Bit Burgers on Droop Street, and Up In Smoke on Hopkins Street. 8 Bit had the warm new year's welcome gift of 14 smashed windows and the words “F**k off hipster scum” spray-painted on their entrance.

Visual Melbourne

Melbourne’s architectural landscape is a wonderful juxtaposition of modern and Victorian architecture. Although the CBD has been peppered with many skyscrapers, its historical structures have won Melbourne the title of “Australia’s most European city”.

Sustainability & Environment

Timber mid-rise buildings are becoming the preferred choice for many stakeholders in Melbourne, due to a combination of factors, including cost-effectiveness, liveability, ease and efficiency of construction. Within the recent National Construction Code change, Deemed-To-Satisfy provisions allow mid-rise timber construction for buildings up to 25 metres “effective height” (typically, eight storeys).
