MONTHLY CONSTRUCTION UPDATE

DOMAIN PRECINCT

JULY 2019

Major construction is continuing in the Domain Precinct at the site of the future Anzac Station. This update provides an outline of current and upcoming works in your area throughout July.

It is full steam ahead in the northern and southern sections of the station box with June seeing the start of extended work hours in the northern section, where excavation under the station roof is well underway. The final two roof slab pours for this northern section are set to happen in July. In the southern section, excavation, reinforcement and concrete pours are continuing. The civil works at Edmund Herring Oval are now
complete. Concrete walls and slabs have been constructed to prepare for works in July. Edmund Herring Oval will now begin to install the various treatment plants needed to support the Tunnel Boring Machines (TBM) which will arrive in Domain later this year. Some works outlined in this notification extend beyond July to provide a longer term lookahead.

Construction snapshot

Construction works are continuing within the Domain precinct during July and will include:

• Northern section station box roof slab construction, bulk excavation and installation of support struts underground.

• Southern section station box initial excavation and roof slab construction.

• TBM support site deliveries and installation at Edmund Herring Oval.

• Preparatory works for the St Kilda Road realignment including the temporary closure of Albert Road North.

WORKS IN YOUR AREA

Bulk excavation

Northern section of the station box, Ongoing between 7am and 10pm, Monday to Friday and 7am and 1pm Saturdays

• Bulk excavation through the void in the roof slab of the northern section of the station box will continue throughout July.

• Steel beams will be installed as temporary support until excavation reaches the base level of the station box and the floor slab is poured.

• Work activities under the station roof will also include earth movers and excavators.

• At surface level an excavator will remove soil from inside the station box and load this into trucks.

• These works are expected to generate a low to medium level of noise.

• Ventilation systems for works below ground will be installed in July.

• As these works extend to 10pm there will be directional above-ground lighting in place for the safety of workers.

• Every effort will be made to minimise the impact on residents through careful planning and positioning of lighting.

Roof slab construction

Northern and southern section of the station box, Ongoing between 7am and 10pm, Monday to Friday and 7am to 6pm Saturdays

• Roof slab construction includes excavation, installation of formwork, steel fixing, concrete pours and waterproofing.

• Roof slab construction in the northern section of the station box is nearing completion with two concrete pours remaining.

• Works continue in the southern section of the station box to construct the roof slab of the future Anzac Station.

• Breakout of asphalt and excavation to roof slab level will occur throughout July.

• Breakout of the asphalt is expected to generate a high level of noise.

• Hydro-demolition will be used along the southern east and west D-walls to expose the points to tie the new roof into the station walls.

• Hydro-demolition in this area is expected to generate a high level of noise. These works will not continue beyond 6pm.

• Excavators and jackhammering will be used for pile break-back at the southern end of the southern section of the station box in July.

• These works are expected to generate a high level of noise. These works will not continue beyond 6pm.

• Concrete pours must be continuous to ensure structural integrity. Therefore, these activities in the northern and southern box may need to extend out of normal construction hours.

• Every effort will be made to ensure that they are completed within standard work hours.

• In both the northern and southern section of the station box, steel tying works will continue from 6pm to 10pm, Monday to Friday and 1pm to 5pm on Saturdays.

• Activities will be limited to minimise noise. Works during this time will primarily involve steel fixers using hand tools.

• During roof construction in the southern section of the station box there will be an increase in truck movements in Bowen Lane and Albert Road South.

Tunnel boring support site, Edmund Herring Oval

Installation of treatment plant ongoing until TBM launch

• In July and until late August there will be an increase in the number of large deliveries to Edmund Herring Oval as components of the treatment plants begin to arrive.

• Installation of the treatment plants will progress as deliveries arrive.

• These plants will support the operations of the TBMs which are due to arrive on site later this year.

Preparation works – St Kilda Road
realignment

Corner of Albert Road and St Kilda Road
Monday 15 July to early September

• As notified in June, preparatory works will begin Monday 15 July for the 24/7 St Kilda Road realignment works later this year.

• These preparation works will construct the connection between the current and the new St Kilda Road alignment.

• This involves kerb works, excavation, drainage works, pavement placement, asphalting works and lighting works along the eastern edge of Albert Reserve and on Albert Road North.

• By completing these works now, the project team is able to reduce the amount of 24/7 works needed during the next realignment of St Kilda Road.

• These works will result in changes to the local road network for two months. (See traffic and
transport section for more details.)

TRAFFIC AND TRANSPORT IMPACTS

Oversized transport, St Kilda Road and Edmund Herring Oval

Between 3am and 7am
• During July, oversized equipment will need to be taken to and from site during the late night and early morning. This equipment needs to be transported at night to minimise impacts on traffic and trams.

• Deliveries will be made to construction sites via St Kilda Road between 3am and 7am.

• Deliveries won’t be unloaded until after 7am. Any removals from site will be pre-loaded and driven straight from site.

• All delivery vehicles will be fitted with broadband reverse beepers.

Albert Road North traffic impacts

• In late July there will be a one-month closure of the Albert Road North exit onto St Kilda Road city-bound.

• During this time, all traffic in Albert Road will need to exit via Kings Way.

• Cyclists accessing St Kilda Road from Albert Street North will need to dismount.

• There will be short day time closure of the northbound bike lane on St Kilda Road to facilitate preparation works on Albert Road. Signage will be in place to warn motorists and cyclists.

• Pedestrian access through the area will be maintained and driveway access and rubbish collection will be maintained for residents and businesses.

• To set up traffic barriers for these works, there will be an overnight closure of St Kilda Road city-bound between Toorak Road West and Park Street from 9pm to 5.30am the following day. This closure will be notified closer to the date.

UPCOMING MAJOR WORKS IN DOMAIN

St Kilda Road Realignment works – confirmed date

St Kilda Road

13 to 27 October, 24/7 works

• The date for the second stage realignment of St Kilda Road is now confirmed to begin on the evening of 13 October 2019. These realignment works will allow the completion of the section of the station box connecting the northern and southern sections.

• During this period, St Kilda Road will remain open to vehicles and cyclists, but buses will replace trams.
• Construction works will be undertaken 24/7 to minimise the amount of time that buses are replacing trams. Every effort will be made in the construction planning to minimise the impact on the community, this includes scheduling the noisiest works during the day wherever possible.

• Further detail on the construction, traffic and busing arrangements will be provided closer to the date.

WORKS NOTIFICATION

EXTENDED LINK ROAD CLOSURE, PREPARATION OF ST KILDA ROAD

FRIDAY 6 SEPTEMBER TO SUNDAY 13 OCTOBER

Works in preparation for major construction of the Metro Tunnel Project and the new Anzac Station are continuing. The current phase of construction involves preparation for the realignment of St Kilda Road and tram occupation.

What we are doing

Before we can realign St Kilda Road during the tram occupation in October, we have to prepare the area to allow for the new road to be built. At the link road connecting Bowen Lane to Albert Road South, we will be completing kerb works, excavation, drainage instalment, pavement placement, asphalting works and lighting works leading up to the commencement of the St Kilda Road realignment. Once these works are complete, Bowen Lane will reopen with a direct connection onto St Kilda Road.

When

Normal construction hours:

• 7am-6pm, Monday to Friday
• 7am-1pm, Saturday.

By completing these works now, the project team can reduce the amount of 24/7 works needed during the upcoming realignment of St Kilda Road.

What to be aware of

• For the duration of the works, the link road in front of The Domain, connecting Bowen Lane to Albert Road South will be closed to all
vehicle traffic.

• There will be intermittent pedestrian diversions along St Kilda Road between Albert Road and Bowen Lane during some works. These will be notified in advance with signage.

• Residents of the Botanica who use the lower carpark will still be able to access their driveway from Bowen Lane.
