Quick Murrumbeena update: The carrier is gone (but the wheel assemblies are still visible in the staging area), the gantry cranes are both gone and the towers used to disassemble the gantry cranes are ...

[quote=historian]The viaduct structure is finished.

The last span in the Up viaduct has been placed by the straddle crane - might have been this morning, but was probably over the last few days. To ...

At 7 am this morning another span had been installed overnight - and the carrier was sitting on top of it with yet another span. The carrier was about to start travelling on the ruler.

At this rat ...

ROFL, I sort of wondered if the chap with the larger camera and the IT shirt was a RailPager! I was the woman filming with her mobile yesterday. Smile
It was indeed impressive. And impressively slow.  ...

And overnight another span was placed in Murrumbeena. Clearly part of the new Hughesdale Station with all the cut-outs on the side.

The crane can lift the straddle carrier across at Murrumbeena

[quote=historian]I was quite wrong about the installation of beams at the northern end; they are continuing to use the straddle crane. Yesterday or early today the first beam across Grange Rd was inst ...

I had a quick look at how far the spans have been installed at both ends today.

In total there are 86 piers on each side (172 in total) in Area 1 - Caulfield to Hughesdale. Pier 1 is at the Caulfie ...

Anyone know how far the rest of the line has progressed? I haven't bothered with the line for some time so an update would be nice.

I saw they said 100 beams done, 70 to go around Murrumbeena, so they will be a while before they will be doing track/overhead there

Out of curiosity, have you enquired about the VPS? If so what has the process been like?

Agree with your conjecture. The obvious place to put two additional lines is *between* the viaducts they are building now. Just have to reconstruct the stations to be on the outside of the lines and n ...

Thanks! No smoke without fire indeed.

I'd like to do a little protesting* against the plans - my house is affected, with the house in shadow until 10 am and the front garden until 11 am on the win ...
