|New rail being laid for the northbound junction at Talbot Square|
The North Station tramway extension contractors have been busy laying the track work for the junction with the Promenade at Talbot Square this week. The curved sections of rail that join to the existing Promenade line points are being welded in place first, this will allow the contractors to adjust the remaining sections of curved rail so that they align correctly with the newly laid pointwork in the centre of Talbot Square.
