Yarra trams have advised that route 59 trams will be replaced by buses between the Children's Hospital and the terminus tonight and tomorrow night.
The reason is: "... essential renewal works at Essendon Tram Depot in Mt Alexander Road"
See also the attached pics made this afternoon.
It looks like the points at the north end of the depot have failed and will be repaired overnight.
