Boggo Road sheet piling

From mid-May for approximately one to two weeks, sheet piling activities will be undertaken at Boggo Road.

Sheet piling is a ground stabilising method used to reinforce existing structures where construction activities are close to structures. At Boggo Road, sheet piling will be used to support a section of Joe Baker Street to enable construction of the pile capping beam to be undertaken. Once the sheet piles are installed, excavation activities can then start.

Details of work

Sheet piling works will be carried out intermittently from Monday 18 May for approximately one to two weeks during normal daytime construction hours from 6.30am to 6.30pm, Monday to Saturday, weather and construction conditions permitting.

What is sheet piling?

Sheet piling involves the use of an excavator to vibrate interlocking sheets of metal into the ground to form a barrier similar to a retaining wall.

This method is often used when construction activities are close to existing structures, as the process results in minimal disturbance to the ground.

What to expect

  • Increases in noise, dust and vibration. These impacts will be minimised as much as possible, with comprehensive environment and safety management measures in place.
  • Noise and vibration monitoring will be undertaken during the sheet piling activities.
  • Increased truck movements as excavation onsite continues
  • Trucks delivering and removing machinery and materials to the work site.

All efforts are made to reduce impacts to the community in close proximity to project work. If you have any questions about the project, call 1800 010 875 to speak to a member of the Cross River Rail Tunnel & Stations team.
