Hopkins Street crosses the railway line at the up end of Footscray station. To make way for the RRL track pair, a number of commercial buildings on the north-west side of the line are being demolished, along with a block of flats on Byron Street.

North side of the Hopkins Street bridge closed to traffic, as work starts on the new two-track extension to the west

The existing four track bridge is being retained, with minor changes to the western abutment, as well as the parapets.
