Redcliffe Community Zone
Within the Redcliffe Station box temporary tunnel segments that guided TBM Sandy into the station, and the blind rings that helped propel her out of the station, are currently being dismantled. Clearing the station box of these temporary concrete segments means further progress can be made within the underground area. This will include commencement of the platform slab, as well as progress on the staircases at either end of the station, which are currently partway through construction.
Since the start of tunnelling in 2017, tunnel segments have been transported from Forrestfield to the TBMs by multi-service vehicles (MSVs). Now that both TBMs are on their way to Bayswater, the tunnel segments are trucked to Redcliffe and lowered into the station box using an electric 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, works are on hold until the weather improves. The carpark 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.
