Unipart Rail has recently been awarded a major contract with Melbourne's tram network, Australia, operated by Yarra Trams.

As part of the biggest tram depot redevelopment in Melbourne's history this will transform Preston Workshops into a state-of-the-art facility for new generation E-Class trams, Yarra trams has engaged a team of Unipart Expert Practitioners to work with their teams for the next 12 months to develop and implement new ways of working, drawing on their experience gained from similar projects in the UK and Australia where Unipart Rail has been operating for over 7 years.

The aim of the project is to support Yarra Trams operational teams to learn lean tools and embed these skills into their working practices to ensure that the enhancements gained through the redeveloped facilities are fully realised to deliver a 'best in class' tram maintenance facility.
