A new tram maintenance and stabling facility will be built on part of the old Victoria University site at the corner of Williamson and Hampstead roads in Maidstone.
The new facility will used to clean, stable and maintain Melbourne’s next-generation G Class trams, which will start rolling out locally on routes 57, 59 and 82 from 2025.
The project will also extend the local tram line on Hampstead and Williamson roads with the trams accessing the facility on Hampstead Road.
