Metro Tunnel

Acoustic sheds

Our construction sites are enclosed by temporary acoustic sheds while the Metro Tunnel stations are being built.

Acoustic sheds are custom-built, and are commonly used during construction of tunnels to minimise noise, light and dust spill on the local community during 24-hour tunnelling activities.

During construction, acoustic sheds are in place at:

  • State Library Station:
    • Franklin Street
    • A'Beckett Street
  • Town Hall Station:
    • City Square
    • Federation Square
  • Anzac Station:
    • St Kilda Road

Once construction of the stations is complete the sheds will be removed.
