Temporary acoustic sheds will be built to enclose construction sites while the new Metro Tunnel stations are built.
Acoustic sheds are commonly used during construction of tunnels to minimise noise, light and dust spill on the local community during 24-hour tunnelling activities.
Each shed will be custom built and will help to minimise impacts from construction on nearby residents, businesses and the local community.
The acoustic shed located above the future State Library Station on Franklin Street, between Swanston and Victoria streets was completed in February 2018.
Construction of the shed at A’Beckett Street was completed in March 2018.
Construction of an acoustic shed at City Square will begin later in 2018.
From 2019 an acoustic shed will be built at the corner of Swanston Street and Flinders Street.
