CYP – week ahead

Good morning everyone,

We hope you’ve been keeping well.

We are writing today with our next weekly construction lookahead.

Anzac Station entrance construction – Tram Interchange

In the tram interchange station entrance, next week work will continue on the construction of the oculus structure. Timber and steel canopy support beams will continue being lifted and secured into place.

Next week, the timber sections of the canopy will begin to be lifted and secured into place. As we’d mentioned in the monthly construction update these works will continue until 10pm on work nights.

We’ve included a picture today of a close up of the green support legs and timber canopy beams. From your balconies, or from the street level, it may not appear that these beams are timber. They are currently covered in protective grey plastic. You can see in the picture a little bit of what is beneath that cover.

Station box construction

No change to the works going on underground next week. Precast over track exhaust (OTE) installation continues, along with the framework that will form the platform doors. Installation of the precast sections of the future station platform are underway. The precast segments will be lowered into the station box until 10pm, while preparation works ahead of their installation will continue overnight. This activity is located entirely at platform level, and is unlikely to generate high noise at surface after 10pm.

Today, we’ve included a picture of the platform precast installation progress. In this picture, you can also see above the platform some of the over track exhaust precast that has been installed, as well as the platform screen door steel framework.

Internal walls and permanent columns continue to be constructed in the station box, moving from south to north, as well as continuing the construction of the headwall that connects the station box to the tunnels. These works will involve steelfixing, formworking and concrete pours. As with all concrete pours, they must be completed continuously, and may run over normal construction hours.

As per the construction notice, steel fixing will continue in the station box 24/7.

Acoustic insulation, and mechanical electrical and plumbing fit out works are also continuing in the station box.

Plunge columns will continue to be removed, as well as firewall shotcreting, heading from south to north in the station box. Works on the plunge columns will continue within the station box until 10pm, and preparation works for the firewall shotcreting will continue on night shift. These activities are unlikely to generate high noise at surface level.

Now that the large crane we’ve been using has been dismantled and removed from site, the crane set up towards the northern end of site near Domain Road will be our primary crane lowering precast and equipment into the station box. This crane will be used up until 10pm on work nights. A second smaller crane will arrive to site next week to assist with deliveries into station box, and be set up towards the southern end of site. This crane may also be required until 10pm on work nights.

Surface Works

Now that the large crane has been demobilised, demolition of the temporary slab can continue in that area. In addition to works there, the D-wall demolition will continue, as well as the surface works in sections 2 and 3.

These works will generate periods of high noise and the works will be carried out during normal working hours.

In addition to the surface works listed below, waterproofing and screeding in the area will continue. Non-Destructive-Digging trucks – also known as sucker trucks –  will be used on site to clean out any debris in the strip of reinforced steel prior to concrete being poured in the sections of delayed pour strip.

Emergency system testing

This Saturday afternoon, the team will be conducting some testing on our emergency and evacuation systems. There will be times during this testing where alarms will sound from site. This testing work should be completed by 4pm.

Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea Fundraiser

Next Thursday 19 May from 10am, the Creative Program will be hosting a Biggest Morning Tea fundraiser in the Albert Road Reserve pop up park. We look forward to seeing you there!

Thanks
