I know that there is some confusion about the exact location of the temporary tram tracks outside The Botanica. Metro Rail have the attached maps which have a lot of detail.
It shows the trees that will be removed for the #8 tram works (orange), the trees that will go as part of the service relocation work / station box (blue) and others (purple). As will so often be the case with this work, there is good news and bad news.
The bad news is that we lose our close trees (on footpath) but the good news is we keep our median strip ones for now – the bigger healthier ones. Also good that the tram is not under our windows but that is because the digging will be (later on).
Current plan – minimum of one lane of cars in each directions plus trams plus bikes
