AM 469 on a run to Swanson passes a hi-rail in the trench parked on the new Up Main. Near the rear of the train is the turnout for one of the link tracks to the tunnel, with the other track branching off the other side of Normanby Road

The original Mt Eden station is quickly starting to look like a functional station again, with the new Up Main running past the original platform and the station building visible in the distance. With the tunnel excavation now complete, the support systems for the TBM have been removed but the spoil shed remains, and has been repurposed

Although some work is still to be done, the Normanby Road overbridge is now open to road traffic as well as pedestrians. The roundabout on the other side of the bridge is also now fully open, although Boston Road remains closed in one direction

Viewed from Normanby Road, the height difference between the two link tracks is evident here, as one passes below the Down Main while the other starts just before the underpass

Looking towards Grafton, the turnout for the other link track is visible. New rails sit between the tracks waiting to be installed
