Our chosen shopping centre is South Melbourne. Our St Kilda Road highrise
and its two sister buildings house perhaps 500 people. South of us are
thousands of residents in highrise buildings. I know many of the residents
in our building shop in South Melbourne as we tail them from our carpark,
or they tail us. We would not use the car for shopping if there was a
direct tram. As it is, two trams, plus a walk, perhaps a thirty minute
journey there, that could be ten minutes by tram.
Being a lengthy tram process for South Melbourne residents to get the major
hospital The Alfred by tram, a volunteer car driver service operates.
Who knows where the tram might go after Clarendon Street but I would hope
for a Fishermans Bend area where it would provide a useful connection for
the huge development there to come, to South Melbourne and the city south
I can assure you the tram after the Park Street fill in is built, will be
busy from day one.
