From January 2019

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.
