Roma Street station construction update - October 2021

The Roma Street team is expecting to complete excavation for the services building this month allowing the team to start construction of the new building. Excavation for the station building is ongoing. TBM Else has left the cavern and is on its way to the Northern Tunnel Portal in Spring Hill, with TBM Merle in the process of traversing (moving through) the Roma Street station cavern before also continuing its journey. The underground team will now continue excavating the passenger access tunnels, installing cavern inground drainage and starting to construct the permanent concrete lining of the cavern.
