METRO TUNNEL EARLY WORKS
Water Diversion on Albert Road
ABOUT THE PROJECT

As part of preparation works before construction started on the Metro Tunnel Rail Station, John Holland engaged Adept Drainage to divert the existing steel water main on Albert Road, St Kilda so new infrastructure could be installed.

The work we did

The project took place over four days

During the first two days, we used an open cutting technique to expose the existing installed water main. We did the cutting in two parts to minimise traffic disruption as the location was in a built-up area.

We chose a prefabricated OD257 MSCL Pipe (dog leg) as it was the most efficient way to divert the water main, given our time constraints.

On the third day, we installed the prefabricated pipe. We did this at night to minimise disruption because we had to shut down the existing water main while we connected the new pipe.

We used Gibault joints at both ends of the pipe to connect the existing water main to the new water main.

PROJECT OUTCOME

We successfully diverted the water main while minimising disruption. The project was completed on time and within budget and we lost no time due to injury.
