The Metro Tunnel will transform public transport above and below ground, including Melbourne’s tram network.
During the construction of Domain station, trams will continue to run along St Kilda Road. As part of the project, we will build new tram connections on Toorak Road West, Park Street in South Melbourne and on Flinders Street in the CBD to allow trams to continue at the end of Elizabeth Street.
These connections will allow trams to spread out across the city once the Metro Tunnel is up and running, delivering high-frequency train services from Domain to Parkville and relieving pressure on trams along Swanston Street and St Kilda Road–the busiest tram route in the world.
Most metros are built in the underground and the tunnels construction will be inevitable. Hollow Bar Anchor is a new supporting method in infrastructure construction. It provides anti-corrosion effect, controls deformation and enhances supporting effect with high tenacity and big tension.
Secure construction of railway engineering is the guarantee for people’s life and safety. During the construction of metro tunnels, railway tunnels, high-speed railway tunnels, Hollow Bar Anchors have higher bonding stress with structures and then provides reliable reinforcement effect. Therefore, the economic and social benefits are obvious.
