The first of 50 new trams capable of carrying more than 200 people was unveiled at the Preston tram workshop on Monday, about seven months behind schedule.
The new trams are the cornerstone of an $800 million project to boost Melbourne’s tram network. They were ordered by the former Brumby government.
The new tram will be used on route 96 between East Brunswick and St Kilda, one of the city's busiest. But it is not expected to make its first run until October, because it must first complete about 100 kilometres of test runs.
