Great, I'll get to uploading it then.Excellent, I am looking forward to it, thank you
I don't think that part is ready yet? Maybe after the current shut-down.The section from Footscray to West Footscray is probably one of the more complex sections to build. V/Line trains will most likely not be running through there until new track is laid through the future RRL platforms 3 & 4 at Footscray, and until the existing platforms have been rebuilt & extended. There was an existing junction of sorts at South Kensington before the RRL tracks went through - it was probably logical to put in another junction between the Metro tracks & the RRL tracks at this location. At the moment tracks are laid across the South Kensington viaduct & the river bridge and even over the flyover. However the new tracks stop just over the flyover and new tracks won't be laid until the works at Footscray are just about finished.
I second the 'thanks' for that video, interesting to see the first tracks open for traffic.
The train was running a bit slower than I expected however I did enjoy seeming glimpse of the Spion Kop junction and the other RRL tracks going off to the right.I was a little surprised at the slower speed on the new section also (Footscray - South Kensington was quite a bit quicker) but the journey time from Footscray to Southern Cross was still greatly reduced, no doubt due to having a clear path all the way in past North Melbourne (well, near North Melbourne).
True there, I just should've went there straight after taking photos at the old HV McKay bridge. Forgot all about going there!The Regional Rail Link website Photo page has a couple of photos of the new HV McKay bridge being lifted & installed. It's certainly one of the more substantial pedestrian footbridges I've ever seen.
