WORKS on the controversial elevated rail line are well and truly underway with both Carnegie and Murrumbeena train stations demolished and a steady stream of machinery coming and going from the work sites.
Piling works to lay foundations for the sky rail project has started with the first of two massive piling rigs already delivered to Murrumbeena Station. Each rig weighs 140 tonnes.

Piling rigs have already been delivered to Murrumbeena train station. Picture: Valeriu CampanDuring the next couple of months the piling rigs — with masts up to 30 metres tall — will install more than 1000 piles in the ground along the rail corridor in preparation for the arrival of the gantry cranes later this year.
The project’s gantry cranes will take shape to install 2500 locally-manufactured segments by moving back and forth in the air.
This will allow for less disruption to commuters, with trains continuing to run underneath.
