Did all this work get done at the weekend ?
It didn't look like the HV lines were relocated and new poles are still lying around.
Sefton to Cabramatta has only just been resignalled in the last year or two. It will be interesting to see how much brand new infrastructure such as cables and huts are in the way of the SSFL.
For example, at Sefton South there are two? walk in huts that might be on top of the alignment of the SSFL which would be in tunnel at this point.
It is noted that the SSFL was originally a Paul Keating (not PH mind you) One Nation project in around 1993-1996.
It's the same height as the existing line that has not once as far as I know been closed there in the last 145 years or so by scary floods.
Surely this is even less a real issue than the tragic plight of the local residents who have discovered to their shock that there is a railway line and that trains run on it? Others with more knowledge please enlighten me?
...From my understanding, the line was to be cut into the side of the embankment, or at least there was discussions of it.
East of the Sefton Triangle from the Auburn road over-bridge. You can see the beginnings of earthworks for the dive (?) under the existing freight line and (two lines in front of the earthworks) and Bankstown line (out of sight below).
Yesterday morning there were a few blokes doing preliminary work around where the new pedestrian overbridge and lifts will go in at Warwick Farm. Noticed similar activity at Sefton station on the way home, only with a larger crew.
