Boy, this thread has died off! I'm inclined to blame the comms people at Metro/LXRP/Regional rail as there appears to be a whole lot of silence coming out of all three of these bodies platforms, compared to a year ago when there were constant updates, even being able to track the delivery of the first TBM. Now it appears that the third TBM has been shipped and delivered to the Domain site and the fourth is either on the docks now or about to be with no promotion of them at all.
The small road header that was at La Trobe street earlier this year is now at work from the Federation Square site and a large one is going into the City square site in the next week or so. One of the three at State Library is leaving, whether it is the one going into the city square site or no longer required is not clear.
Work on the State Library platform is about to commence so they must have dug out enough area to do that.
The two TBMs out of North Melbourne aren't getting to South Kensington until, at least, February now; presumably, because of the holiday shut down. Possibly they aren't working as fast as they could as the retrieval shaft is still not ready for them, unlike at South Yarra.
The station boxes at North and, it appears, Parkville have reached their final depth as has the northern box at Domain.
For all the lack of updates, it's good to see that things are progressing
