A stormwater main is to be relocated as works on the new Roma Street station proceeds apace
AN UNDERGROUND stormwater drain is to be relocated later this month in order to allow for construction of the new Roma Street station building.
The relocation is to be for six-weeks from late February.
According to CrossRiverRail proponents, the new underground stormwater main alignment is to extend from within the Roma Street station construction site to the westbound lanes on Roma Street.
“Temporary traffic changes, night work and weekend work are required to install the new underground stormwater main,” a joint statement read.
“Access to properties, the existing rail and bus stations and vehicle movements on Roma Street will be maintained at all times.”
The new underground stormwater main is to be installed using a micro-tunnelling methodology.
Works are to involve:
Work within the construction site is to be done during standard construction hours, Monday to Saturday 6:30am to 6:30pm.
Work outside the construction site on Roma Street is to be done at night between 6:30pm and 6:30am due to traffic permit requirements.
