Track work is taking place this week on the Bendigo line. A long string of new concrete sticks has been laid out next to the West track from around the 72km post heading in a down direction right up to the point where the 160 KM/H board marks the change in line speed
The placement of the new ties corresponds almost perfectly with spots where there are still timber sleepers remaining and it looks like this work will remove pretty much all timber from this section.
It remains to be seen whether the line speed will be increased from 130 > 160 in this section
Also of interest (well to me anyway) is whether V/Line will take advantage of Wednesdays industrial action to get some of the work done during daylight hours instead of doing the work at night.
