Dudley St to be closed again for rail works

31 Jan 2012

Docklanders have been advised that Dudley St will again be closed this month to allow works to proceed on the new Regional Rail Link.

Rail Link Authority construction manager Evan Tattersall has written to residents and businesses advising that Dudley St will be close during the weekend of February 3-6.

Mr Tattersall said the full closure was necessary to allow for the installation of concrete panels to the new bridge structure which was installed in December.

“The closure is required to ensure the safety of motorists, pedestrians and workers. Signed detour routes will be in place during the closure to direct traffic. Pedestrian access will be limited to ensure public safety,” Mr Tattersall said.

“In addition to night works, ongoing daytime works, including survey works, piling, installation of services, non-destructive digging, earthworks and associated signalling work, will occur along the rail corridor between Southern Cross Station and Moonee Ponds Creek.”

The works schedule outlined in the letter is:

  • Thursday, February 2  to Sunday, February 12 – day/night drainage work – car park Laurens St, North Melbourne (Melway Ref: 43 C6);
  • 1pm Friday, February 3 to 7am Monday, February 6 – includes full closure of Dudley St, North Melbourne between Wurundjeri Way and Adderley St (Melway Ref: 43 C7-D7) from 11am Saturday, February 4 to 11am Sunday, February 5;
  • 10pm Saturday, February 11 to 7am Sunday, February 12;
  • 11pm Friday, February 17 to 7am Monday, February 20; and
  • 10pm Saturday, February 25 to 7am Sunday, February 26.

Mr Tattersall said: “Drainage works will be undertaken in the car park in Laurens Street, North Melbourne from Thursday, February 2 to Sunday, February 12. Nearby residents may experience noise during these activities. For safety reasons, and due to the proximity of the work site to railway lines, these activities cannot be carried out while trains are running.”

“To reduce noise impacts the project team will use a piling method that produces lower levels of noise and vibration and will install broadband reversing beepers on vehicles and construction equipment. Generators will be required to illuminate the sites.”

“While every effort is made to complete works within specified timeframes, due to unforeseen circumstances there may be occasions where the work schedule changes or additional night works are required at short notice.”
