Roads reinstated after CRL construction
Construction equipment has now been cleared from Wellesley St at the Albert St intersection. The Wellesley St shaft for the new stormwater line under Albert St has been capped and the road reinstated.
The traffic deck under the Customs/Albert intersection has been completed, restoring normal traffic flow (two lanes in each direction) along Customs St.
The reinforced concrete deck allows vehicles to travel through the intersection – and in and out of Albert St – while the excavation of the CRL tunnel boxes continues underneath.
Works to be completed by December
By the end of the year, the Albert St construction deck will be completed, enabling a continuous traffic lane to be provided on both sides of the road along the full length of Albert St.
This will remove the current need to divert northbound traffic along Wolfe St and enable the street to return to its original one-way eastbound configuration.
The large acoustic shed that surrounded one of the Victoria St shafts is now being dismantled and should be gone by December. The 22-metre shaft, which launched the tunnel boring machine that pipe-jacked the new Albert St stormwater line, is being backfilled.
The shed will then be removed and Victoria St realigned to its pre-construction state.
