Bayswater Community Zone
The final section of the 400m-long dive structure base slab was recently poured. The entire slab consisted of 18 concrete pours in total, with the first section poured in November 2018 and the final section poured in June 2019.
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 are currently being installed.
Following community consultation in early May, it was confirmed that the walls will be painted using an intermittent pattern of green, blue and grey.
Completion of this set of works is expected by the end of August.
