After more than six years Wombat Creek has gone from this

The last track work involved the bridge over the mining railway and the creek. After months of deliberations I have come to the conclusion a gauntlet with the tracks intertwined was not possible. Instead the two tracks a positioned close to each other allowing only one tram at the time to cross the bridge. To avoid a tram crash ( or a car crash) traffic lights have be installed at either end of the bridge. Electronics controls the frequency of the lights but not the running of the trams.

As mentioned the bridge is rather narrow and people crossing the bridge risk being squashed by out-swinging trams. Appropriate warning signs have been installed.
