Found this out yesterday… Excluding the City Loop, when was the last time a Melbourne rail line was extended by three or more new stations? 87 years ago! Before the ballpoint pen was invented.

How are we getting rid of nine level crossings without shutting down our busiest train line? With really big cranes.

Melbourne has a fair few nightmare bridges, and we’re fixing them one-by-one. – Chandler Hwy: We’re building a new, six lane bridge next to it. – The West Gate: We’re building a second river crossing. – The EJ Whitten Bridge on the M80: We’re adding new lanes. What’s next? Watch this video to find out. […]
