Moray Street

Dorcas Street roundabout will be open during the week commencing 18 June, weather permitting. Motorists will be required to give way to pedestrians and cyclists.

The Moray Street and Coventry Street intersection will be fully closed for approximately one month from mid-late June to late July.

Details of works between Kings Way on-ramp and Albert Road can be found in the Moray Street Bike Path June notification PDF, 4.2 MB.

For more information about the changes see the Moray Street Bike Path page.

July

Domain precinct

Site establishment activities include the construction of hoarding and site fencing at several locations around the worksite.

These works will require some pedestrian diversions within Albert Road Reserve and the progressive occupation of parking spaces (up to 3 at a time) on Domain Road. We will notify impacted residents and businesses separately about these works.

For more information, see the recent precinct updates:

Ongoing until November 2018

Domain precinct

To prepare the area for the northern section station box, piling, excavation, installing diaphragm walls (D-walls) and concrete piles will be performed.

These works will take place from 7am – 6pm, Monday to Friday and 7am – 1pm, Saturdays. There may be periods of loud noise.

Bentonite plant

A temporary bentonite plant is in place until late 2019.

Five temporary silos up to 11m tall will create bentonite clay, assisting in the construction of the D-wall. During construction, the plant will recycle materials for future use.
Piling platform

Ongoing piling platform works in July.

Guide wall

Works to build guide walls to maintain the horizontal alignment and wall continuity of the D-wall continue. These works require up to 20 trucks per day accessing the site via St Kilda Road.

D-wall construction

Works to install the D-walls to a depth of 25 metres along the sides of the station box are continuing in July.

Concrete pours for guide wall and D-Wall construction and for piling works must be continuous to ensure the structural integrity of the concrete. Once a concrete pour has started, it must be completed and on occasions this activity may need to continue outside of the above normal construction hours.

For more information, see the recent precinct updates:

Ongoing until mid to late 2019

Domain precinct

To prepare the area for the southern section station box, piling and ground anchor removals will be performed.

These works will take place from 7am – 6pm, Monday to Friday and 7am – 1pm, Saturdays. There may be periods of loud noise.

The St Kilda Road service lane in front of 390 St Kilda Road will be closed until the completion of the southern box in mid to late 2019.

On street parking from Bowen Crescent to Bowen Lane will be removed until mid to late 2019 to commence piling pad construction on the South Box.

Piling platform

A piling platform is under construction for the southern section of the station box.

Ground anchor removal

During the construction of 390 St Kilda Road, ground anchors were placed under St Kilda Road to help stabilise the building during its construction.

These now-redundant anchors are in the path of the new station box and will be removed. Please note these anchors will not affect the structural integrity of the building.

This work requires temporary pedestrian diversions and the removal of fourteen trees on St Kilda Road between Bowen Crescent and Bowen Lane.

For more information, see the recent precinct updates:

21 July

St Kilda Road

To facilitate works to remove the redundant ground anchors adjacent to 390 St Kilda Road, the team will be installing covered pedestrian walkways in front of the building.

These walkways will be temporary installations to ensure the safety of pedestrians during nearby works and will include internal lighting.

Covered walkways will also be used when the team commence guide wall works and D-wall works adjacent to the pedestrian path at the southern box.

In order to minimise impacts on local businesses and pedestrians, the walkway will be installed on Saturday 21 July from 7am – 1pm.

Works will include the use of a truck crane and will generate intermittent high level noise. During the installation the footpath outside 390 St Kilda Road will be closed and a pedestrian diversion will be in place.

12 July

Domain work site

Emergency evacuation procedure testing will take place at approximately 11am.

An air siren will be sounded on site for approximately one minute and the workforce will evacuate to either parkland behind the Cobbers statue in the Shrine Grounds or to Albert Reserve.

The entire exercise is expected to take 30 minutes to complete. Please note that the drill may be postponed to later in July in the event of heavy rain.

July

Domain precinct

Geotechnical investigations and soil sampling will continue from 7am - 6pm, weekdays and 7am - 1pm, Saturdays.

These works include the use of non-destructive digging (NDD) and drill rigs to install groundwater monitoring wells as well as collection of soil samples to understand quality of soil.

The St Kilda Road service lane in front of 400 and 390 St Kilda Road will remain closed until mid to late 2019.
