Works Update

The Forrestfield construction site is a key location for the project as it will house infrastructure vital to the operation of the tunnel boring machines (TBMs). Two TBMs will begin tunnelling from the site, along Dundas Road, in mid-2017. View a map of the expected construction footprint for Forrestfield Station.

PTA began Forward Works at the site in November 2015. The site was then handed over to SI-NRW in September 2016 to begin Early Works, which included clearing, demolition of some buildings and installing fencing around the site.

To the east of Dundas Road, work is continuing to establish the main site compound. Hardstand is being laid in preparation for the arrival of key infrastructure for the project, as well as the precast concrete segments which will soon be stored on site. To the west of Dundas Road, work is underway on the project’s first cross passage, and diaphragm walls are being built to support the tunnel portal. To find out more, view the latest works fact sheet

Forrestfield Community Group

Engagement with local businesses and residents remains a focus for the project team. To help ensure we remain aware of local issues, the project team has established community advisory groups for each of the project's community zones. 

At these meetings, Forrestfield Community Group members are presented with design information and details of project progress, and asked to provide feedback, guidance and local knowledge during site establishment and early construction works.
