Major Metro Tunnel construction continues

Construction works are continuing to reach milestones at the Domain precinct – the site of the future Anzac Station.

One tunnel boring machine (TBM) has begun tunnelling towards the southeastern suburbs while the assembly of another TBM is also nearing completion.

The construction works will now comprise 24/7 tunnelling in the direction of South Yarra with a tunnel boring support site at Edmund Herring Oval commencing its around the clock operations.

Metro Tunnel will simultaneously continue assembling the remaining TBM that is set to commencing tunnelling later this month.

The construction works in the area also include constructing the middle box, constructing the Anzac Station entrance and Peppercorn Lawn ground improvement works.

Rail Projects Victoria said the traffic impacts will include truck movements delivering concrete tunnel segments which will arrive at the Anzac Station site regularly via St Kilda Road.

There will also be increased truck traffic at the Peppercorn Lawn site via Boathouse Drive with traffic control in place to facilitate this truck access.
