Sign up to our enews and select "Domain / Anzac Station" to receive work notifications by email.



What is happening?


Park St

Night works will be taking place on Park St, line marking the recently resurfaced road.

This will take place from:

Sunday 17 February and Monday 18 February 2019, 9pm to 5am.

Non-local drivers will be detoured, however access will be maintained for residents and businesses.

For further details, see the works notification (PDF, 278.7 KB).


St Kilda Rd

Night works will take place at the Anzac site, relocating piling equipment from the northern to the southern section of the station box.

As a result, St Kilda Road will be closed between Dorcas Street and Toorak Road West/Kings Way between 1.30am and 5am on Monday 4 February 2019.

Local access to residential buildings and businesses will be maintained.

Additionally, various out of hours deliveries will occur at the site during the late night and early morning.

Further out of hours works will potentially occur during D-wall and piling activities, although every effort will be made to keep these within standard working hours Monday to Saturday.

Entry vehicle gates will also be installed out of hours on Saturday and Sundays for three weeks, generating low levels of noise in and around the northern site.

These works will occur in conjunction with further site establishment works at both station boxes, and continuing pedestrian diversions in the area surrounding 390 and 400 St Kilda Rd.

For further information on the works occurring this month, please see the works notification (PDF, 1.1 MB).

From January

St Kilda Rd

There will be an increase in the amount of machinery operating in the southern section of the station box from mid-January 2019.

There will be periods of loud noise and some vibration associated with non-destructive digging, guide wall demolition, rock breaking, jack hammering, ground compaction, saw cutting, asphalting, road resurfacing and pavement construction.

Water carts and dust suppressants will be used to manage dust.

All impacts will be managed in accordance with the Metro Tunnel Environmental Performance Requirements.

Footpath diversion – Shrine Grounds

A new footpath diversion has been created within the Shrine Grounds near the MacRobertson Fountain. This is to accommodate the expansion of the construction site in this area.

Short-term delays and diversions

To maintain the safety of pedestrians, at times the project team will need to delay or divert pedestrians during crane lifts and piling works, particularly when these works are within close vicinity to footpaths. Traffic controllers will be in place, but please take care when moving around the construction area.
