Acoustic shed disassembly
Next week work will continue on disassembly of the acoustic shed, with roof panels and southern wall panels coming down.
Next week, the gantry crane that sits within the acoustic shed, and fed all of the concrete tunnel segments down to the TBMs during tunnelling, will be removed.
You might have seen that yesterday a large crane was placed outside the northern end of the acoustic shed.
Now that this crane is assembled, it will lift the gantry crane pieces onto waiting trucks to be removed from site. The crane pieces will be removed by truck over three nights from Monday 31 January. Due to the size of the trucks removing the gantry crane from site, they will leave site between midnight and 4.00am. Crews will be reminded of requirements around reversing beepers and noise mitigation ahead of these truck movements. This will be a similar method to how pieces of the TBMs were removed from site last year.
