Bombardier's Dandenong site near Melbourne, with plants in Mannheim and
Siegen, Germany, supplying propulsion systems and bogies respectively.
The first Flexity Melbourne will be delivered in 2012.

Melbourne's light rail network is one of the largest in the world, and
last year carried 175.6 million passengers. The state government says
the new Flexity vehicles will allow operator Yarra Trams to carry an
extra 10,500 passengers at peak times.
