it wasn't me .... but I seem to recall those missing tracks may well be where the TGV runs on its way to Lausanne!
Now I think of it, I did hear some heavy drilling as I passed under the tracks on Thursday evening ...

They could be laying a concrete track bed.

Maybe the track's on back-order from Peco.

On a rather smaller scale, they have been doing something similar on the oldest sections of metre gauge tramway tracks - whilst keeping the trams running during the day.
As the tramway shares some of its route with other road users, ach work section is closed off by a sprung (or rising hinge / weighted) "gate" incorporating a bicycle wheel which can be opened by each tram: the wheel running along the side of the tram and the gate then closes behind it automatically. No electrics/electronics involved - just running speed limited to a mere crawl. Fascinating!
