Good evening all,
We hope everyone has had a great week.
Below is a wrap-up of construction activities happening on-site next week, noting that there will be some nightworks on Tuesday and Wednesday undertaking road resurfacing and realigning the southbound lane of St Kilda Road. Works will begin on Tuesday 26 July, with Monday being an RDO.
Over the past two weeks, the team have been preparing a new section of road within our site. This is to prepare for next week’s new alignment of the southbound lane on St Kilda Road. This weekend, works will continue finishing road surfaces within site, applying granular layers and asphalt with a vibratory roller. Some of these road works within site may continue this Saturday to 4pm in order to get ready for the road switch mid-week.
On Tuesday 26 August and Wednesday 27 August, between 8pm-5am, overnight works will complete the tie in points of this section with St Kilda Road. Overnight works will include moving concrete barriers and applying asphalt at the tie in points on Tuesday night. Finishing works including line marking will recommence on Wednesday night the new alignment of the southbound lane in place from 5am Thursday morning.
Traffic management will begin setting up on Tuesday and Wednesday at 8pm with southbound lane road detours in place by 9pm. Wednesday traffic will run on the current alignment. The attached notification for these works indicates the southbound lane detour via Kings Way that will be in place during these overnight works.
Other surface works to be undertaken over the next week include demolition of the D-wall north of this area. The team will be trialling the use of a wire saw to cut sections of D-wall where there are no services behind the wall. This will reduce the amount of jackhammering required.
East of the oculus we will be waterproofing and backfilling down the centre of site. Excavating, backfilling and waterproofing will also continue in the north-west section of site.
You will have noticed that site sheds have been removed over the past week in the northern end of site where drainage and road works will begin to prepare for another realignment of St Kilda Road’s southbound lane in September. Some minor pedestrian detours may be in place over the next two months where these sheds have been removed with further information to be provided as these works progress.
CitiPower have advised us that they will be carrying out works this Sunday on the high voltage connection points at the pedestrian crossing at Domain Road. CitiPower operate under a separate permit to the Metro Tunnel works and as a result are subject to different standard working hours (as is the case with all utility companies) Citipower will be undertaking works within the Domain precinct at the Shrine of Remembrance, Domain Road and Park Street and will also provide separate notification of their works occurring over the next month.
We’ll keep everyone updated on works outside the normal construction hours as we are informed of their works.
Anzac Station entrance construction – Tram Interchange
On the platform station canopy, skylights will be installed over the next two weeks, beginning next Tuesday. The team will use basic hand tools and a scissor lift to install and, with some potential wet weather in line for next week, may include some out of hours works until 6pm weekdays and Saturday until 5pm. This work is not expected to generate a lot of noise.
Installation of wet fire services continues with installation of the fascia around the canopy starting next week. The Tram Interchange platform kiosk takes further shape with two external façade panels and roofing being installed next week to reveal the full footprint of the kiosk.
Station box construction
Within the lower levels of the station box the B1 level fit out and room build is on-going with the roughing in of services. The substation for the northern HV rooms will be arriving in the next 2 weeks which will be lowered in through the void from surface level. In surrounding service and operational rooms, more doors and finishing surfaces will be installed with layers of sealant and paint applied to these areas.
Down on B2 the core stairs have been installed with more insulation, cladding and ducting being installed in the southern end around attenuators over the coming week.
