Hope Island station construction update - April 2024

Acciona Georgiou Joint Venture (AGJV) has been awarded the contract to design and build Hope Island station, with major construction now underway.


Site establishment

In April, site establishment works will continue within the future Hope Island station work area in Mangrove Jack Park.

Works will be undertaken between 7:00am until 5:00pm Monday to Saturday.

Works will include:

  • General earthworks and construction of temporary piling platforms adjacent to the rail corridor and temporary works area in Mangrove Jack Park
  • Relocation of underground utility services
  • Installation of temporary site facilities
  • Ongoing site investigation works including ground surveys and geotechnical assessments.


Piling works

During April, piling works will continue on the east and west of the existing rail viaduct. Pile break back works will commence at completed piles to cut back the concrete to the design height.

Works will be undertaken between 7:00am and 5:00pm Monday to Saturday.

Works will include the use of piling rigs, cranes, excavators, trucks, concrete trucks and pumps, jackhammers, and rock breaker attachments.

Sub-structure construction

From late April, construction of the platform substructure is scheduled to commence. The substructure includes the platform columns and headstocks.

Works will be undertaken between 7:00am and 5:00pm Monday to Saturday.

Works will include the erection of scaffolding around completed piles and the use of cranes, concrete trucks, and pumps.

Due to site conditions, concrete pours for the platform substructure may be completed outside of normal construction hours.

What to expect

  • Construction activities may generate increased levels of noise, dust, and vibration in the area associated with the use of construction equipment. Every effort will be taken to keep noise to a minimum
  • Comprehensive management plans and onsite controls have been established to monitor and mitigate impacts of construction, such as water carts for dust suppression
  • The use of machinery including graders, excavators, trucks, compaction equipment, vacuum trucks, cranes, water carts, drill rigs, and other hand-held tools
  • Increased truck movements and workforce on site
  • Pedestrian changes in Mangrove Jack Park, as per the map above.
  • The temporary site compound will remain in place for the duration of construction and will be reinstated as public parkland at the completion of construction activities.

We appreciate your patience while we work to build the new Hope Island station.
