Tunnelling through

8 months ago

The CBD & South East Light Rail has taken another huge step forward with the first concrete base slab poured into what will soon be a light rail tunnel underneath Moore Park.

Construction crews have been busy excavating around 84,000 tonnes of fill to dig the nine-metre deep tunnel, which will connect the recently installed Eastern Distributor Bridge with the future stop at Moore Park.

The tunnel, which is expected to be complete late 2017, will be more than 500 metres long connecting to the recently installed Eastern Distributor Bridge and emerging at a new future stop close to the Sydney Football Stadium and Sydney Cricket Ground. The fill excavated for the tunnel will be re-used across the project.
