Metro Tunnel CRG -October meeting


Meeting notes

  • Northern box has now had a number of “D Wall” panels installed
  • First panel had some issues but process working well now
  • More panels being done Thursday/Friday this week – northern box
  • Southern box work is mainly a low retaining wall.  Needed due to proximity of hole to the road
  • Ground anchor work to happen at 390 St K Rd next week
  • Small business mentoring work being offered in the area – free.  Goodwill for small business.
  • Dust monitoring now fully operational and reporting being done
    • Two monitoring stations, one inside Melb Grammar and one inside Albert Rd Reserve
    • All reports shows well under the legal limit
  • A lot of discussion on impact of dust on all residents/buildings
    • CYP pushed the line
      • Not all dust caused by them
      • They are meeting their contractual obligation
    • The meeting made it clear that it was not acceptable
    • Added for further discussion
  • Trees
    • Tabled the obligations on CYP (in attachment)
    • Concern about the additional trees to be planted in Albert Rd Reserve.  What type?
  • Noise – CYP acknowledged that they had not provided timely noise reports.  To be rectified ASAP
  • Tram Squeal
    • Equipment has been received
    • Tender has been issued and let (to Fulton Hogan)
    • Pits to be modified
    • Needs to be done at night when no trams
    • Will be done in last week of October
  • City of Melb – Domain Parkland study
    • Commenced in 2015
    • As population increases and climate change occurs, need to manage parks differently
    • This is looking forward 10+ years
    • Big issue around having 5 different controlling entities (City of M, State Govt, Shrine, Myer Music Bowl and Botanic Gardens)
    • Likely to see a proper Visitors Centre
    • A lot of work around making getting into the parklands better – for example getting from Anzac Station to the gardens
      • Likely to see Dallas Brooks Drive improved for peds
      • Some tweaks to Edmund herring Oval (post Metro Tunnel)
    • Will see reduction in commuter car parking – these are the 10 hours type bays, they want more people parking near the park who use the park and less city workers!
    • Big focus on managing events better
      • One co-ordinator across all bodies
      • Some fun runs starting in Olympic Park.  It has permanent toilets and makes setup easier.  It also means some runs will go towards to Fitzroy gardens…spread the load
