Suburban rail loop site investigations at Clayton
22 Mar 2021
As planning continues for Stage One of the Suburban Rail Loop (Cheltenham to Box Hill), site investigations will be conducted by the Suburban Rail Loop Authority (SRLA) throughout March and April at Monash’s Clayton campus and surrounding areas.
Geotechnical drilling works will commence on Wednesday 24 March in the Monash Community Family Co-Operative (MCFCO) car park and grassed areas at the corner of Howleys and Normanby Roads, adjacent to Normanby House. The works will run to a scheduled program for for approximately four weeks between the hours of 7am-5pm Monday-Friday, and occasionally on weekends between 9am-1pm.
In late April, works will also be conducted near Monash lakes and the Monash Sustainability Institute car park. All boreholes will be located to the east of Scenic Boulevard and Howleys Road.
Mostly machine drilling will be conducted during this time and there will be periods of medium level noise associated with the digging, drilling and soil testing works.
At Monash the health and safety of our community is our first priority. An appropriate traffic management plan and fencing will be in place to ensure public safety. Where the drilling works may disrupt your daily activities, it is recommended that where possible, you relocate to another area. Notice will be given as far in advance as practicable, but at times unforeseen circumstances may affect notification of these works.
If you have any issues or concerns during the works period, please contact the BPD Helpdesk. We appreciate your understanding as these works are conducted.
