The last of the three new stations to commence construction and fit-out of the above-ground structure, Redcliffe Station is quickly catching up.
Installation of glass panels on the lift shafts between ground and platform level is underway. Glazing of the skylights in the main roof has also started, along with roof sheeting works.
Outside the main building all steel columns for the bus canopies and walkways are now in place, as are the respective roof structures.
Frames for the ventilation fan compartments are being erected at either end of the station building and cladding is being installed. Four enclosed rooms in total – one per tunnel per side – will be located within the station precinct.
A series of roadworks in and around the Redcliffe Station construction site are ongoing. Works include excavation, drainage installation (new and existing), subbase laydown and compaction, asphalting, kerbing and paving.
The changes to the road layout will result in a modified T-intersection at Central Avenue and Second Street, and a new road linking Central and Bulong avenues.
Residents may hear some noise and feel some vibration from the machinery used. The roadworks may also generate dust which can be exacerbated by windy conditions. Water trucks will be used and heavier dust suppression measures applied to ground areas when there is no activity expected for a period, e.g. long weekends and public holidays.
There will also be times when traffic management is required, resulting in disruption to motorists and impacts to property access. These will be communicated to impacted residents ahead of time.
