Moore Park progress

3 October 2017

Following the Moore Park tunnel breakthrough under Anzac Parade during August, work is now well underway on the construction of the eastern tunnel portal located near Tramway Oval. Track installation has also started in this area, near Lang Road. On Anzac Parade between Lang Road and Alison Road, track installation has been completed near Robertson Road.

Crews are now ready to start work on the intersection of Anzac Parade with Alison Road and Dacey Avenue. To ensure that traffic movements can be maintained through this major intersection, work will be carried out in a number of stages. A diversion lane is currently being constructed along the track alignment on Anzac Parade, near Alison Road. This will allow all southbound traffic lanes to be diverted, keeping traffic moving during preparatory work and ultimately track installation in the middle of Anzac Parade.

Testing and commissioning of the light rail systems and vehicles will get underway in coming months, as will the installation of overhead wires in Zones 22 and 24, between Lang Road and Wansey Road.
