First let's start with the terminus, either move it to Victroria street or prohibit direct right turns (as opposed to hook turns, P-turns and round-the-block) into Blyth street, if the latter maybe extend it right into CERIES. Then with the rest of Nicholson street East Brunswick,1 easy acess stops are planned, I would say that the platforms should not be inclined sideways (the edge no higher than the sidewalk) contrary to what is illustrated in the diagram, and the tram track be dipped slightly. I also suggest a partial or full road closure barrier across Summer street, to ease provision of a platform stop and allow for longer ramps. On the north side of the intersection with Brunswick road and Holden street,2 and both the north and south sides of the intersection with Glenlyon road, right turn bays between the tram tracks seem like a good idea.
As for the wider part of Nicholson street, all stops strangely enough, are intended to have centre island platforms. But since separate centre island platforms with in some cases be provided on each side of the intersection, one for up trams and the other for down trams, why not just stragger the side island platforms and slew the tracks around them?
1Does this section of road being narrower than the Fitzroy section of Nicholson have something to do with the cable tram having terminated just south of the Inner Cirle railway and North Fitzroy station.
2This road and a number of other cross streets have different names on each side of Nicholson. For example Pigdon street west of Nicholson is Scotcher street east of it, Richardson Street to the west and Reid to the east, Fenwick street to the west and Church to the east, Lee street to the west and York to the east, Princess street to the west and Alexander Parade to the east, Elgin street to the west and Johnson to the east, and lastly, Carlton street to the west and Moor to the east.
Onto Acland street, I see they are trying to make it into a mall, so I would recmmend concept 1 with terminus C, with dipped tram tracks which wolud provide direct access to buisinesses at the terminus. Also, should route 96 ever be diverted and extended to Brighton beach along the former electric street railway alignment?
