The track is in ballast from the Ross Straw field (behind the Zoo) to about 150m from Flemington Rd.
It is in concrete to the sleeper top from the crossover at Royal Park station to Ross Straw field and for about 50m from Flemington Rd to about 150m.
The Elliott Ave crossing is in mass concrete as is the first 50 m from Flemington Rd (pic attached) and the section from Poplar St to the Royal Park crossover.
All that is missing is the now common crushed rock and asphalt finish ... for that you have to go to Flemington Rd or Grantham St.
