Redcliffe Community Zone
TBM Sandy broke through into the station box on Saturday July 6. She is currently undergoing the same month-long maintenance program as TBM Grace recently did, including the fitting of a new screw conveyor, were undertaken and the machine relaunched on her last leg of tunnelling.
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. Further ground works, including asphalting, will occur over the next couple of months once the wet weather clears.
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.
