January 2021 has seen the pouring of the first track in Eat street between the Lennox Bridge and Phillip Street.

Construction crews are working a combined 8,500 hours a day/night and 166m of track has been installed.

Fun fact: Construction crews will use aluminothermic welding to fuse sections of rail. The welding process uses a combustible powder with metals mixed in that heats up the ends of both rails. The powder forms a molten metal that is shaped by a mould to form the shape of the rails. How about that for science!
