The State Government is spending big money on its rail projects, including the “skyrail” along the Dandenong line. And things are happening elsewhere, too, judging from the road and rail disruptions during the so-called “Autumn Construction Blitz“.
And closer to home, work is happening on the railway line along the street from us. There was a lot of activity last weekend, apparently pouring concrete for the foundations of new structures. I’m sure that it’s tricky work, but there did seem a lot of people involved, not all of whom appeared to be doing very much at the time I glanced over the fence! Because there are two pairs of tracks, trains were able to operate seemingly satisfactorily on the tracks not occupied by the works.
