Addition of track panels on either side of the 2nd (Eastern) track at TAFE crossing
This is a minor enabling work for future use. Long-term plans have the museum double track run between the two Pitt Street crossings (which we call Pitt Street crossing and TAFE Crossing, but both are Pitt Street – it runs through the TAFE and back out again).
The main driver for this is to ensure the Rawson Road upgrade respects the rail corridor, as the round-about at this location is not properly located and is too close to the track.
The small Tuesday night gang have been welding up rails at this location.
This also means we have a place for surplus concrete. With Waratah Loop complete, we have few places to take offered surplus concrete. Setting these panels up means we have somewhere to use the concrete.
