What is happening?
From 17 September
St Kilda Road
To undertake works to adjust traffic barriers we will need to close St Kilda Road at the following locations from Monday 17 September for up to three nights:
These works are expected to generate intermittent periods of medium to high level noise associated with the movement of concrete traffic barriers.
Works will involve the use of a small crane to shift barriers, light towers, generators, hammer drills, line marking vehicles, water blasting and line marking.
For more information, see the Overnight St Kilda Road closures notification (PDF, 1.0 MB).
Construction works are continuing within the St Kilda Road site throughout September and will include:
Potential extended work hours – Concrete pours (Monday – Saturday)
Please note that Diaphragm wall (D-wall) excavation works have now started. Excavated D-wall holes cannot be left open for extended periods of time and must be poured with concrete soon after the reinforcement cage is placed in the excavated hole.
Concrete pours for guide wall and D-wall construction and for piling works must be continuous to ensure structural integrity. Once a concrete pour has started, it must be completed and on occasions this activity may need to continue outside of normal construction hours.
These works are expected to generate low levels of noise and every effort will be made to ensure they are completed within standard work hours.
