Redcliffe Community Zone
Following TBM Grace’s arrival at Redcliffe Station in early May, scheduled maintenance works, including the fitting of a new screw conveyor, were undertaken and the machine has recently relaunched on her last leg of tunnelling.
TBM Sandy is expected to break through into the station box in late June, where she will undergo the same month-long maintenance program as Grace.
Since the start of tunnelling in 2017, tunnel segments have been transported from Forrestfield to the TBMs by multi-service vehicles (MSVs). From June onward, and for the remainder of the TBMs’ journey to Bayswater, the tunnel segments will be trucked to Redcliffe and lowered into the station box by the tower crane, with MSVs carting the segments through the tunnels to the TBMs.
At the construction site of the station’s 500-bay car park, located near Central Avenue and Second Street, sealing works have been completed and asphalting work has commenced.
The car park will be used as a lay-down area until it is officially opened. The finishing touches, such as line markings and landscaping, will not be completed until later in the construction program.
