The addition of two extra tracks from South Kensington to Footscray saw the elimination of the physical junction at Footscray. The work was undertaken over several weekends in October/November 1976.
B 68 on an up Geelong pass is seen crossing from the Geelong line to the up line from Sunshine. With the completion of the works this crossover was eliminated, there is now no connection between the Newport and Sunshine lines at Footscray
