Melbourne Metro Early Works

The $10.9 billion Metro Tunnel will deliver twin nine-kilometre tunnels and five new underground stations at Arden, Parkville, CBD North, CBD South and Domain, creating a new dedicated pathway through the city for two of Melbourne’s busiest rail lines. Octave Acoustics was engaged by John Holland as independent peer reviewer for the Metro Tunnel Early Works, the first package of works.

The Metro Tunnel Early Works package ran between July 2016 to January 2018 and included:

The relocation of power, drainage, gas, water, sewer and telecommunications services to clear the alignment prior to the Main Works commencing in 2018.

The construction of two access shafts in Franklin Street and A’Beckett Street to enable future construction of the stations.

Major site preparation works including land clearing, property demolition, temporary relocation of monuments and tree protection and removal across all precincts.
