In 1908, Victoria Avenue in Whanganui was dug up so that the lines for the new municipal tram lines could be laid. The "turning of the first sod" took place in June 1908 and was performed by the Mayoress, Mrs Isabelle Mackay. The tramway opened in December 1908, and was in use until 1950, when they were replaced with buses.
