>> the steepest gradient on the Melbourne tram network is at Sussex Street stop in Surrey Hills on Riversdale Road on the Wattle Park line. It is closer to 1 in 8 (the gradient of the pedestrian ramps at Flinders Street Station). Other slopes on Riversdale Road also are steeper than 1 in 12. This is why the M&MTB used this line for driver training.
