City cops transport woes as tram strike hits

Melburnians are being told to expect extensive delays on Friday as a four-hour tram strike hits tens of thousands of commuters.

Trams will come to a halt from 10am to 3pm on Friday, as about 1500 Yarra Trams drivers and customer service personnel down tools in a bitter dispute for better pay.

Delays are expected from 9am on Friday and commuters are being asked to consider alternative travel options or avoid non-essential travel altogether, as buses replacing trams will only run every 20 to 30 minutes.

Buses will prioritise hospitals, shopping centres and universities, and will run along St Kilda Road every 15 minutes.
