Here are a couple more pics from Wednesday.
After the rail is attached to sleepers with Pandrol clips, levelled and concreted it is then filled to just below rail height with crushed rock / recycled concrete.
The final topping is a seal of bitumen.
These two stages are relatively time consuming because of the need to use small rollers between the rails.
Having said that, nearly a mile of track was virtually finished on Wednesday after 5 days occupation.
Mal Rowe - who has some concerns about this method where there is heavy motor traffic.
