Traffic Light Tweak Aims to Stop Trams Getting Stuck as Roads Congest

Some of Melbourne’s busiest intersections will be reprogrammed to give greater priority to trams, as transport authorities grapple with worsening road congestion and a historical surge in tram patronage.

.

Passenger numbers on Melbourne’s trams have soared 12 per cent in just one year, figures published late last week show, to 203.8 million trips in 2015-16. Patronage numbers have suddenly hit levels the city has not seen since private car travel began to supersede public transport use in the 1950s.

.

Public Transport Victoria has attributed the rise to the introduction of the free tram zone in 2015 and to Melbourne’s apartment boom, which is concentrated along inner-city tram corridors.

.

“Since 2012 more than a third of building approvals for new dwellings have been nearby tram routes,” the authority said in its annual report. “As these dwellings are built and occupied, this leads to a significant population growth in the tram catchment.”

.

Urban Melbourne has begun to track the explosion in development along Melbourne’s tram lines in a series that reveals, for example, almost 3000 apartments approved or in construction along tram route 19.

.

Tram speeds in Melbourne are among the slowest in the world, at a network-wide average of about 16km/h, according to Yarra Trams, and PTV’s annual report noted that “trams continue to be affected by traffic congestion”.

.

In an effort to improve this, the Andrews government will introduce two trials of new technology on the roads next year.

.

Minister for Roads Luke Donnellan? said it is hoped the intelligent transport technology trial will reduce congestion.

.

“Improving the flow of trams at intersections will make services more reliable and reduce congestion on our roads, helping to get passengers where they need to go, on time,” he said.

.

The first trial will involve installing devices inside trams and traffic signal boxes, which will communicate with each other to alert the traffic lights to approaching trams.

.

The co-operative intelligent transport system will be more responsive than the current tram priority signals that sit beneath the surface of the road, which are triggered each time a tram passes, regardless of the level of congestion.
