Politicians in Adelaide, South Australia, have expressed support for extending the tram network into the suburbs of North Adelaide and Prospect, according to this article in the City North Messenger newspaper.
City Council officials see the extension as a means of easing traffic congestion and serving crush load crowds attending events at the Adelaide Oval sports ground, according to the article by reporter Lisa Bachmayer, with officials eyeing a tram route running up King William Road and through O’Connell Street.

I also wrote a little about the history of Adelaide’s tramways in September 2010 as part of my erstwhile Wednesday Postcards feature.
