NEW PEAK TRAM STOP

MacDonnell Road innovation

The many residents in the vicinity of Macdonnell-Road, mid-levels, will benefit from an innovation introduced this week by the Peak Tramway Company, in the shape of a landing platform where trams will stop on request

The new stop was instituted, it is stated, because the Company felt that the amount of traffic would justify its inauguration. It had been suggested to them by residents of the district that such a feature would be welcome.

The new stop is a permanent one, and should prove of great benefit to travellers to this level who formerly had to walk from the Bowen Road or Kennedy Road stop, or take a taxi or chair from town.
