Bayswater Community Zone
The final section of the dive structure’s base slab has been poured. The entire slab consisted of 18 concrete pours in total. The total volume of concrete poured for all base slabs in the dive structure is approximately 5400 cubic metres, the total weight of steel in slabs is approximately 1080 tonnes and the total area of waterproofing membrane used under the concrete base slabs is approximately 6500 square metres.
Two parallel retaining walls are currently being constructed at the western end of the site. One of the walls will retain vegetation and the other, spanning 328m, will separate the rail reserve from the principal shared path (PSP).
Along Whatley Crescent, a mechanical rig has completed installation of 163 steel posts for the noise wall. The panels for the noise wall have been installed and application of the anti-graffiti paint has commenced. This work is weather permitting and is expected to take a couple of weeks to complete.
Following community consultation in early May it was confirmed that the walls will be painted using an intermittent pattern of green, blue and grey.
Works are also due to commence on the backfilling of the southern retaining wall, which separates the cycle path from the rail reserve near the corner of Whatley Crescent and Cobden Street.
