I was about to say that 8km (up from 500m last year) was not too bad - given the heavy engineering approach and the apparently lack of will to bring in massive numbers of workers and machines as Melbourne does.

Then I read the above article and found out that the '8km' is actually 4km of double track, and that the George St work is said to be running a year late.
