Does anyone know what this single piece of track is doing just a bit north of Macquarie Fields Station?
That's a set of points being constructed for the SWRL. Best guess, as I posted in the SWRL thread, is that these are for where the quad comes back in to a pair just after the southern flyover. Not sure when these are being installed, but you should see a second set being constructed soon. Doesn't seem to be anything looking like a full shutdown of both southern and easthills lines in the next month or so.
I would expect that the northern flyover joining into the Up EH line could be brought into use as soon as it's finished, thus avoiding the conflicting movement with Down Main traffic. They don't have to wait til the whole thing's finished, do they?
Essentially 2nd part of #10 which showed the train going the down direction, this video shows the train going in the up direction.
Hey boxything - this flyover has nothing to do with the SWRL. It's all ARTC's SSFL.
Thanx for posting the first shots of the actual SWRL branch itself, i.e. beyond the junction area. Speedy progress. Must be a marginal electorate!
Railfans are a strange bunch, that much can be said with honesty - if the government is too slow, all of the armchair experts come out to say so, in their "expert" opinions, they think work should have started long ago. If things are happening speedily, there must be some sort of agenda at play!
Finishing works will continue on the rail flyovers and construction of the track formation and installation of new track has now commenced on the Northern Flyover. Construction of the exit ramp that connects the Northern flyover structure to the East Hills Line is also underway.
delivery and installation of rail, overhead wire structures and wire. Excavation of footings and cable routes will also occur plus track tamping and adjustment.
