Shutting down parts of the network in December! Has Metro gone mad?

I wonder how Route 70, 72, and 109 trams have been travelling in the past few days?  A bit squishy I would imagine!
Don't forget routes 6 (from Glen Iris), 3 (from East Malvern), 75 (from Camberwell, Burwood & Hawthorn) and 16 (from Glenferrie & Kooyong)

My daughter was waiting for a tram 48 on Wellington Parade on Monday morning 4 Dec after 9 am, and every tram 48 and 75 that went past was so full it couldn't take her and her friends (with baggage). Some trams didn't even stop for them.

It is a pity that Metro didn't plan for this better, because it must have made it difficult for any other tram travellers in the inner suburbs. VicRoads should be prepared to help more through bus priority, because if the replacement buses are not trusted, traffic increases and it becomes a traffic management problem.

Well, that's refreshing - at least someone has put up an alternative idea instead of just moaning about it.

OK, all you experts . . . when should Metro do the work?

Granted, Metro/PTV havne't been great with works notices this year. But obviously the shutdown and upgrades of the Burnley group was scheduled when it was to accommodate the January shutdown of the Caulfield group. I don't think anyone could plan for two major groups being shut down at the same time. And as has become evident, there will be numerous buses feeding into the Burnley group at East Malvern & Burnley from Oakleigh and Caulfield during January as well as buses to Brighton Beach.
