  • Melbourne tram route 67

    Melbourne tram route 67 is a tram route on the Melbourne network which operates between Melbourne University and Carnegie. The 12.7 kilometre route is operated by Z, A and B class trams from Glenhuntly depot.[1][2]

    The route starts at Melbourne University and operates via Swanston Street, St Kilda Road, Brighton Road and Glen Huntly Road to its terminus on the corner of Truganini and Koornang Roads in Carnegie.[3]

    History

    Route 67 was first allocated to the line between Carnegie and the City (Swanston Street) on 1 November 1970, as part of a network-wide renumbering scheme. Prior to that, the line to Carnegie was serviced by Route 4. When route numbers were first introduced to Melbourne’s tram network, Route 67 was allocated to the route between Point Ormond and Elsternwick. A number revision in 1938 led to Route 67 being allocated between Balaclava Junction and St Kilda Beach via Dandenong Road and St Kilda Junction. Further changes on 1 August 1955 led to Route 67 becoming a shortworking for West Coburg services terminating in the City (William St) rather than Domain Road. Trams traditionally terminated at the Victoria St terminus, but following an accident in 1991, trams instead terminated at the Queensberry St crossover. Due to congestion during peak hours at the crossover, some trams continued north to Melbourne University. Finally on 17 January 1996, a permanent shunt was built at Melbourne University. From then on, Route 67 trams were altered run full-time to Melbourne University.

    The origins of route 67 lie in separate tram lines. The section of track between Queensberry Street (Stop 4) and Brunning Street (Stop 38) is the oldest section of this route, dating back to the Brighton Road cable tram which opened on 11 October 1888 by the Melbourne Tramway & Omnibus Company. This cable tram line was electrified in stages by the Melbourne & Metropolitan Tramways Board (MMTB). The section between Domain Interchange (Stop 20) and St Kilda Junction (Stop 30) was electrified on 27 December 1925. The section between Queensberry Street and City Road (near Stop 14) was electrified on the same day. The line between City Road and Domain Interchange was electrified on 24 January 1926. The Prahran & Malvern Tramways Trust opened the Glenhuntly Road line between Elsternwick (Stop 44) and Grange Road (Stop 62) on 13 November 1913. The Melbourne & Metropolitan Tramways Board extended this line to Carnegie on 19 December 1926. The section of track between Brunning Street and Glenhuntly Road (Stop 43) opened on 29 August 1926.

    In January 2016, route 67 began operating through the night on Fridays and Saturdays as part of the Night Network.[4]
