THE first Gold Coast tram has been towed along the tracks into the light rail depot after a two hour journey from the Port of Brisbane early this morning.
The tram left the Port around midnight, travelling for two hours down the motorway on a 20-axle truck accompanied by a security escort.
Once on the Coast the tram became the first of 14 to be placed on the yet to be energised tracks on Queen Street, before being towed along by two trucks up through the Wardoo Street intersection and into the Gold Coast light rail depot in Southport.
The tram was one of two which arrived at the Port of Brisbane on Tuesday morning, with the second to be transported to the Coast overnight on Friday.
The trams will commence on-track testing around the first week of October.
The remaining 12 trams will be shipped as completed with the last one expected to arrive in early 2014, ready for operation around June.
