Good evening everyone,
Wrapping up after a fairly wet afternoon, below is a round-up of the activities happening on site next week.
Works will begin on Tuesday, with Monday 11 July being an RDO on site.
Anzac Station entrance construction – Tram Interchange
You may have noticed that the canopy of the new tram interchange platform has been making great progress with the last panels of cross laminated timber (CLT) being applied yesterday. Installation of the wet fire services (essentially the fire sprinklers) are continuing next week with the assembly and installation of the skylights beginning next week.
Over the next week, the team will also begin the installation of the roof cladding.
Station box construction
Mechanical services and electrical works will be ongoing in the concourse level of the station box, with a delivery of large doors arriving over the next two weeks to be installed in the various services rooms.
Down on platform level, installation of the precast platform segments continue, with the first pour of the integrated topping slab occurring above these precast platform planks.
Next week, the team will be pouring the final set of the fire escape stairs which will connect the platform to the concourse level.
It’s been out of sight, out of mind for a while now – but there is plenty of working being carried out in the tunnels with the team busy fitting out the tunnel with everything required to run trains in the future. This week we’ve included a photo from out at the Eastern Portal in South Yarra – with the tunnel stretching out ahead towards Anzac Station. Specialised gantries are progressively rolling their way towards Anzac Station and onwards to Town Hall Station. These gantries provided the elevated working platform that allow the workforce to affix the various cable trays, brackets and pipes to the wall of the tunnel.
In the southern area, sections of the D-wall will continue to be broken out. As we mentioned last week, the noise reducing shrouds will be fitted to the hydraulic hammers that have this option available.
In the lead up to the realignment of the southbound lane of St Kilda Road, the team are preparing the new section of road with compaction of backfill, crushed rock and granular layers.
Backfill and waterproofing continues on the southern section of the roof slab where previous removal of the diaphragm wall has occurred. Further layers of backfill will be applied over the coming week.
Steel fixings and concrete pouring of the Kiosk structure’s base slab will begin next week with three more pours to follow, this will begin to give shape to the final kiosk structure.
Up in the northern end of the site, you will see the high voltage (HV) works continuing, which involve trenching and laying of conduit. These works are in preparation for the final connection, this work will be carried out by the utility asset owners CitiPower in the next few weeks.
