Good afternoon everyone,
We hope you’ve been keeping well and have had a chance to enjoy some of the warmer weather this week.
We’re writing today with our next weekly construction lookahead.
If you have an urgent issue, please be sure to contact us via 1800 105 105.
ANZAC STATION WEEKLY LOOK AHEAD
Works will carry on as normal inside the acoustic shed. Currently, tunnelling is progressing well and the first TBM Millie is now past Punt Road, with Alice not far behind.
Anzac Station entrance – Shrine of Remembrance
CFA piling for the Shine of Remembrance station entrance was completed last weekend. This week, excavators arrived on site to begin work with trucks starting to haul out material. This excavation will be continuing over the coming weeks as the team excavate down to a depth of approximately 10m. The team will progressively excavate down and break back redundant sections of the exposed piles. There will be some periods of high level noise during these works, as a rough guide there will be approximately two days of excavation followed by two days of pile break back. In addition, the area will be shotcreted as excavation continues. Shotcreting involves a spray-on application of concrete that acts as a support for the exposed ground.
Middle Box Roof Construction
We continue to prepare the final section of the Anzac Station Roof. Steel fixing and reinforcement works are continuing in the middle box area that will form the roof slab. We are currently planning a concrete pour for the roof slab in mid-September. More details on this will be in next week’s lookahead.
Middle Box Excavation
The excavation for this first phase of works is progressing well. Next week the team will continue loading out the excavated material that has been stockpiled under the roof over the past few weeks. This load out of material will likely take all of next week, with the potential of work happening in the week following.
In addition to this, starting tomorrow until the end of next week support strutting at the southern end of the box will be installed. After that, the team will recommence digging for another four days.
We’ve attached a picture of the concourse level excavation to this email, so you can see what has been happening underneath St Kilda Road.
Thanks, Rob, Dan and Jordan
