North Melbourne flyover and junction

At North Melbourne the two sets of tracks from Southern Cross will rejoin near Moonee Ponds Creek for the journey towards Footscray. The existing North Melbourne Flyover is being altered as part of these works to allow trains from platforms 1 through 8 to access the RRL route, while the tracks from platform 15/16 are taking over existing goods lines that pass beside North Melbourne station.
