Soaring toward career and construction goals at Anzac Station
Posted: 07 Apr 2019
The Premier Daniel Andrews and a slew on excited cadets were on site of the new Anzac Station ahead of a dramatic increase in construction efforts.
Excavation has started on the 300-metre-long, 30-metre wide, and 22-metre-deep station box is set to start in February this year.
As part of the ongoing works, there will be traffic disruptions on St Kilda Road between Dorcas Street and Kings Way/Toorak Road West on from 11:30pm-5:00am, to relocate large construction equipment.
Plans to install an acoustic shed over the site in mid-2019 will be essential in the extraction of over 400,000 tonnes of rock and soil during the construction of the new station ahead of the Metro Tunnel’s opening in 2025.
Engineering cadets and other tertiary students have been essential in the plan’s move forward, having worked a combined 135,000 on the Metro Tunnel project.
The Metro Tunnel Project will create nearly 7,000 jobs, including positions for almost 800 apprentices, trainees and cadets.
