I contacted my Metro Rail contact and asked that they do the work out the front as quickly as practical (but during working hours). I attached this photo
This is their reply
In regards to the geotechnical drilling works we are undertaking out the front of your building, I have been provided with an update from our geotech team and they have advised that they will be working in the area for another 5 to 7 business days to complete the works. They have ensured me that they are working as quickly as possible to complete the works and vacate the area.
We appreciate that our works have an impact due to their location, and we thank all residents and businesses in the area for their patience. Another week and we should be out of there. In the meantime, as always, if you have any issues or concerns regarding the works, please feel free to contact me.
I look forward to hearing from you soon in regards to setting up a meeting.
