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.
