it gets interesting around the 1-minute mark. he says we will see the elevated guideway by WEM being installed by the end of the year. he also says 'cranes will be used to lift 50-tonne precast segments into position and then be permanently attached' over video showing the construction process. I got the sense they are going to build the viaduct in a similar fashion to the Menzies LRT bridge (which is a lovely little poetic gesture, given the Menzies' significance, imo) he said this would improve construction times and reduce congestion; i guess compared to VLSE's monolithic casting of entire segments and lifting 600-tonne segments into place whole? I'm speculating a bit here, but this sounds like it could be a big shift from how VLSE was built.
other than that, it seems like Marigold is ready to friggin' go this summer. BLESS. thanks for sharing the video!
