This web page still refers to it:
*These works also include an extension of the tram route from Elizabeth
Street onto Flinders Street via new tram tracks. This will:*
- *allow trams 19, 57 and 59 to integrate into the current tram network
along Flinders Street*
- *reduce delays currently experienced on the network due to trams
terminating at the Elizabeth Street/Flinders Lane tram stop*
- *enhance capacity to and from the sports precinct centred on the MCG
and Melbourne Park.*
