A NEW tram line connecting the CBD to Docklands will be open within three months.
The tram, an extension of the Number 48 North Balwyn tram, will enter Docklands via Collins Street, and pass the Southern Cross train station.
Until now, the Number 48 would enter the city, and travel west along Flinders Street.
Now, that tram will turn right up Spring Street, and left into Collins Street and Docklands.
Transport Minister Lynne Koskly said the new tram route would come into effect this September.
