Redcliffe Community Zone

Works update

With the construction of the 150m-long, 25m-wide and 1.5m-deep base slab complete, preparation works continue for the arrival of the TBMs. These include construction of in-situ double segment blocks, which will support the TBMs and their 130m-long trailing gantries to be manoeuvred through the station box to where the cutterhead is to be lined up for the next section of tunnelling. The temporary segments will be removed once the TBMs have left the station.

Temporary service pipes have also been installed along the diaphragm walls. These pipes enable the supply of water and grout to the TBMs and allow excavated material from tunnelling operations to be channelled back to Forrestfield, where it is treated and reused where possible.

The arrival of the TBMs will see some changes in activity at the Redcliffe site. One of the main changes will be the commencement of 24-hour operations. An electric tower crane will be used to lower tunnel segments into the station box. Multi service vehicles (MSVs) will then transport the segments to the TBMs.

In preparation of the arrival of the tower crane a limestone pad has been constructed to provide a solid foundation.

Activity is ongoing at the site behind Central Avenue and Second Street homes, the location of the future car park. The area is currently being cleared to allow for the installation of a temporary fence, which will remain in place for around three months. A permanent 1.8m-high fence will then be installed, followed by drainage and asphalt. 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.

Redcliffe Station

Redcliffe Station will be an underground station similar to Elizabeth Quay Station. The railway in this location will be fully underground, running inside the tunnel.

The station will benefit the community and surrounding catchment area by providing a bus/train interchange and car park with 500 bays, and allow for a 15-minute journey to the Perth CBD by rail. The station will also service future business and residential developments.

The project team is working closely with local government to ensure the new station compliments their vision for the future of the local area. For more information about local planning visit the City of Belmont's website

Redcliffe 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, 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; this is inclusive of the cross passage construction works near the First St/Brearley Ave intersection.
