Electrification progress report.
I drove along the line from Brighton to Hallett Cove Beach and I am concerned at progress with the electrification.
Contract management experience has shown me that when work does not proceed in a linear manner but is scattered and piecemeal cost and time overruns result.
No wires are installed north of Hallett Cove.
Poles and gantries are missing in parts between HCB and Marino; no cantilevers are installed.
Poles and gantries are erected Marino to Brighton (appears complete) with many cantilevers installed.
HCB and HC station awnings do not have any hardware installed.
Thee are significant quantities of conduit both electrical (orange) and signals (white) being installed so there must be a lot of cables still to pull, terminations to be made and equipment to be commissioned.
Unfortunately my concerns about signalling for the Belair line at the Goodwood underpass proved well founded; let's hope "they" can do better this time.
