Works are proceeding as normal and I grabbed a couple of (rather boring) pics today.

First pic looks north east and shows the last bit of track about to be concreted to rail height.

<Enter pedant mode> It also shows a light truck said to be "CONSTANTLY STOPPING".  One wonders why they bothered to put wheels on it!  <Exit pedant mode>

Second pic looks south west and shows the crushed concrete fill in place and the asphalt surface finish being spread.

There seems to be no plan at this time to install platform stops.

Mal Rowe - confident that the tram will be back on schedule first tram Saturday morning.
