Throughout April, works will be progressing on the Cross River Rail project.
The CBGU joint venture, made up of CPB Contractors, BAM, Ghella, and UGL, will be carrying out the design and construction works for the Roma Street, Albert Street and Boggo Road stations.
At Roma Street, works will continue on the demolition of Hotel Jen, East and West Towers. This involves, the disconnection of utilities, scaffolding work, and structural demolition. Additionally, the former coach terminal access ramp will be demolishing during April and May 2020.
Tunnelling work at Roma Street is also taking place, with the establishment of the site progressing. Works include constructing the tunnel access shaft, installing an acoustic shed, and bringing in tunnelling plant and equipment.
At Albert Street, work will increase during April as piling begins on the demolished Lot 1 site. Excavation of the tunnel shaft will begin at Lot 2, and during this time piling finishes and an acoustic shed will be constructed. These works involve traffic and footpath closures on Mary Street and Albert Street.
Excavation work in the heart of the Brisbane CBD work will involve rock breaking, removal of excavated material, and ground stabilisation and retention work.
The underground Boggo Road station will be where the Cross River Rail project at its southern terminus connects to the existing rail network. During April, major works will continue there as the excavation of the station box begins. Site office buildings will be constructed onsite, along with internal roads and paths. Utility services will be relocated and some pedestrian movements will be disrupted. The play equipment at Outlook Park will be moved closer to Dutton Park State School.
All work on the Cross River Rail project will follow Australian and Queensland government health advice in relation to coronavirus (COVID-19), however as an essential service, work will continue as planned.
