Agree the Chalmers-Chinatown section is very poor. Very weird given the lack of actual traffic or even pedestrians other than Eddy/Pitt

Its one section where plain lack of speed makes a real difference. Especially on Eddy.

But also the tram is routinely held up by the lights at Pitt Street.

Many L2 trams were going today from CQ to Moore Park. Could that be a way to mesh L3 testing into the current service? Also, more trams to Moore Park make sense given schools start next week.

Haymarket to Chinatown seemed to be running more smoothly than before. There was a Transdev marshal at the Hay street crossing moving around with a radio. Most trams did not wait there or before the turn into Rawson place for lights. L2 trams were a bit caught up, though.

The Moore Park school service started running this week with the timetable changes.

Kingsford branch testing has also resumed, but seemingly not during the day.

Do you have a timing?

According to google they're still all doing around the 20 minute mark.

For the cricket they are generally extending the (L3) CQ-Central services CQ-MoorePark, as well as running Central-MoorePark specials.

I ended up waiting 20 min at Town Hall at 3pm (game start 3.40 today so I was late). Reportedly they had a breakdown at CQ and made pax leave and pushed it back. When the board jumped from 3min to 10min and a tram at TH northbound was stopped for 5+min, I walked to QVB and next service was delayed a few times. Finally got on a moderately busy service

Journey to Central was OK. Think there was some markets on the Chinatown side of Hay today explaining the manual signalling. We still waited 60 secs at the pedestrian lights south of Hay.

No crowds at Chalmers, suggesting a number of specials in front of us so was only pax south of central delayed. Devonshire was a completely clean run with only a small stop before the tunnel, though we waited on the tunnel exit for a tram in front to clear.

At both Central and Moore Park they need more Opal poles at the ends - as a large crowd gathers at these.
