November to December 2019

Domain Road

The Metro Tunnel Creative Program is trialling a pop-up park to enhance Domain Road and support local businesses, residents and visitors. The design of the park reflects feedback from the local community and includes wooden decking, outdoor seating and plants reflective of the aesthetic of the nearby gardens.

These works will occur:

  • 25 November 2019 onwards, for up to 2 weeks.

The structure will take up nine car spaces for a period of 5-months located in front of the following businesses: Domain Brasserie, Bacash, Gilson and the Botanical. Planting will occur once the structure is installed and is expected to take an additional week.

The park is expected to be operational from December 2019.

November and December 2019

Anzac Station works site

Major construction is continuing in Domain at the site of the future Anzac Station, including the construction of the acoustic shed over the northern section of the station box. Some sections of the shed will need to be constructed out of hours when there are no workers below.

These works will occur:

What we are doing:

  • Installing panels and steel work on the acoustic shed
  • The works will involve the use of hand tools to affix panels
  • Workers will be using elevated working platforms and a crane.

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