CYP Weekly update

Good afternoon everyone,

I hope everyone has had a wonderful week – just a short update this week focussing in on the surface activities next week:

Anzac Station entrance construction – Tram Interchange

The timber canopy starting to live up to its name, with installation of the first timber diagrid sections. As anyone who has assembled Ikea furniture would know, it takes a bit of time to get a feel for the assembly, but as you can see from the attached photo, the team have now installed some of the sections and are making good progress.

As we’d mentioned in the monthly construction update, some sections of this work may need continue up until 10pm on some nights.

Station box construction

I’ll provide a bigger update on some of the progress in the station box next week, but suffice to say you could read last week’s update and still have a good sense of what is happening underground next week.

Surface Works

Surface breakout and excavation of stage 4 started late last week and is nearly finished (save for some fiddly sections to complete early next week) The team will next week move onto the cleanout of the delayed pour strip that runs adjacent to the D-wall. This does mean the return of everyone’s least favourite pieces of equipment – the Non Destructive Digging (NDD), or Sucker trucks. As mentioned previously these noisy trucks are the only way to clean out the delayed pours strip section to prepare it for a concrete pour. The NDD will likely start on the south end of Stage 4 on Monday and progressively move its way north.

Elsewhere we’ll be bringing in soil and start backfilling around the recently installed pre-cast kiosk. I mentioned in last weeks update that we might take the opportunity to break out some of the surface for the future road an drainage works (starting at the south) We’ll likely now start this work mid-June, focussing the efforts instead on completing the areas over the station box roof.
