40 degrees and a swarm of workers are replacing the tram tracks

The scale and scope of the operation to renew the tram tracks on the 109 is beyond the scope of capture of my little digital camera. When I passed this morning, all the tracks had been removed from the section between Ingles and Bridge and concrete sleepers were lying on pallettes like giant groceries.
Amazing to think that these new tracks are being laid on the same alignment on which the first railway line in Australia was built 157 years ago.
Check the Yarra trams website for details of bus replacement and traffic arrangements on Bridge and Ingles St.
