I'd love to be in Sydney on Wednesday night!.

Anyone planning on being in the crowd?

Bit to late to plan.  Although I read this morning that there are some restricted view tickets left.  I'll be t ...

Having just been made redundant from the private sector, in infrastructure delivery, this looks ideal.  Too bad I'm heading overseas early next year.

Here's a question,  are all employees required to wear vests, or equivalent, when on the corridor?  This afternoon in Melbourne, i saw a Connex employee walking along the track to the platfor at Victo ...

I'd like to see white lighting instead of that yellow-orange crap that's too dim to see properly. (Incidentally, the Safer Design Guidelines for Victoria make reference to this)

That document, if p ...

Doesn't one with a cross on the back signify a particular type of employee?  I had to get a new one when I went to work on a rail job as mine had a cross.

A place is boring, depending on your point of view.   Where I grew up (South West Vic) the town I lived in was very boring.  Now that I'm older and have not lived there for many years, when I go back  ...

Dunno if any engineers here would be able to justify this, but wouldn't it make sense to support the flats somehow (i.e. cranes on each side with cables going underneath) than fill in the ever-growing ...

Yes, apparently a sign of health.

You do know what smeg is don't you?

And the crossovers are silky smooth (though a couple of short stretches of the new track leave a bit to be desired).

Those bits, are they the timber track sections (Woodend-Macedon, Raes Rd-Jacks ...

Track work vehicles are at Sunbury Sidings near Macedon St Sidings and road works is happening on the Macedon St Duplication.

Macedon St duplication has nothing to do with RFR works.  Different co ...

See the thing is water you refer to as coming from the Yarra is coming from protected catchments. The proposal is to take stormwater from Dights Falls in Abbotsford, go down there sometime and think ...

As for drinking "dirty" water, people have been consuming water from the Murray River for years now...

I suppose the main negative from my viewpoint is that Melburnians wouldn't want their water to t ...

There has been a bit of press in the last couple of days about future water supply developments in Victoria, particularly Melbourne.

Between 7am and 7pm, up to 160km/h.  No idea when through certain locations.

V/Locity testing Monday 24/10 & Tuesday 25/10 Sydenham - Kyneton

The crossing of Stony Creek may be a slight hurdle if you sink the tracks, as would maintaining truck access along Francis St.  Other than that, bring it on.

I'm sertain you will have all seen this. Perticuly on RP. Maybe we should start a pertition as well.

Oh and I may as well add CENTER it is spelt CENTRE, not hard pepoles, of all the Americanisms,  ...

If we are going to trans-ship containers from one port to another distant town, then we might put a container port at Portland.  It is deep water, underused and is on SG.

And put the inland port at  ...

By the way byrnesy,  there is no reason why v/line passenger services cannot be re-introduced to Portland and other points on SG beyond Ararat.

Except for the fact that it is a roundabout way to get  ...

Brainiac babes?  More like Brainiac slappers.

Mythbusters for me.

Plus, The Bill is on at the same time

Not really, they're after an EOI for engineering services, a fair way away from an RFT for construction, which is what we need sooner rather than later...

I am reliably informed that the designers were given a brief, and a budget, began to design according to the brief, got halfway through and realised that the budget for the project was too low.

Zinc cream on his lips is just part of his match preparation.  Call it a superstition.

Why does Matty Lloyd still chuck grass in the air at the same venue?  Same reasons.

However, with a long line, you could start work at various locations and not have the work crews getting in each others way. Instead of employing 20 people for 10 weeks, hire 40 for 5 weeks, but worki ...
