Redcliffe Community Zone
Within the Redcliffe Station box temporary tunnel segments that guided TBM Sandy into the station, and the blind rings that helped propel her out of the station, have been removed.
Clearing the station box of these temporary concrete segments means further progress can be made within the underground area, including preparation for the installation of the mezzanine level slab at the eastern end of the station. The mezzanine level will house equipment and controls to operate the station and will only be accessible by staff.
Steel and formwork has now been installed in preparation for pours of the remaining columns between the platform and ground levels.
At the construction site of the station’s 500-bay car park, located near Central Avenue and Second Street, resurfacing works have commenced. 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.
To provide access into the car park, a roundabout will be built at the corner of Boulder Avenue and Second Street. Works on the roundabout are set to begin in December this year. These works involve reclaiming sections of the nearby verge to allow for the required width of the roundabout, as well as new footpaths. The works will also include installation of drainage and new street lighting.
