Metro Tunnel mtg

See attached the slide pack from the most recent meeting with Metro Tunnel people.

Some things to note (sorry a little cryptic):

  • Has been some delays on northern box with paperwork / independent approvals.  John G said, it is the first serious concrete work they have done that is permanent and so more onerous.  Probably a good thing
  • Work sheds in Albert Rd Reserve will go in late 2019 (prob October)
  • RPV is responsible and working on Park St tram extension to Clarendon St.  Will not happen until end of CYP project as it will slightly reduce traffic throughput at Kings Way…also when trains running, there will be decreased tram demand thru to Flinders St
  • After acoustic shed is removed, they scrape away some of the temporary concrete and then do a proper waterproof membrane.  Can’t do earlier or it may get damaged
  • Botanica scaffolding can be removed next week or so but they thought they may leave it all there for 2 more months to stop people getting some spray on them when they do the water blasting.  I said that was not acceptable, just needs some screens to protect from water spray…not full scaffolding
  • Detailed building meetings in next 2 weeks on new traffic stuff….tram slew route, driveway access…Drawings they showed had not acknowledged our driveway issue but John said he knew it was not OK as the plan shows
  • Crosswalk in Albert Rd North will be converted into a Wombat Crossing…raised crosswalk with speed bumps
  • Really bad time for The Botanica will be last 2 weeks of May and maybe first week of June
  • When they do the hydro demolition, it will be noisiest for us when they are on the other side, not when close.  Sounds bounces back
  • City of PP Domain Masterplan excludes the CYP area…so they do not consider Albert Rd Reserve!! They are considering closing the road in front of 1 Queens Rd and extending our park plus upgrading it…..  Could work well
