Adelaide tram drivers to stop work
A worldwide search for "readily available" trams to ease overcrowding on the Glenelg tramline has begun. The State Government has written to about 200 tram owners and suppliers and placed newspaper advertisements from today. Transport Minister Patrick Conlon said the Government wanted to buy up to six trams "as soon as we possibly can".
Independent European experts will be called on to advise on the "best product" to buy. "Ideally we would like to have these vehicles in service later this year," Mr Conlon said. The Government plans to use the trams for two to five years and is offering to either lease or purchase the vehicles. Four new Flexity Class trams also will be ordered to run on the planned extension line to the Adelaide Entertainment Centre.
Delivery is expected by late next year or early 2010.
