Details of the works are outlined below:

  • Thursday, 15th August and Friday, 16th August:
  • A temporary covered pedestrian walkway with scaffolding will be installed, during regular hours, on the Smith Street footpath to ensure the safety of pedestrians.

  • Monday, 19th and Tuesday, 20th August:
  • Further scaffolding will be installed above the pedestrian walkway to provide protection during on site demolition works. The scaffolding works will take place in the early hours of these two days, from 1:30am to 4:30am.
    The footpath and on street carparks on Smith Street will remain open during the installation of the structure. Trucks transporting the scaffolding will be parked on Smith Street and unloaded by hand.

    These measures will allow for the remaining demolition works to occur at the northeast portion of the site during normal work hours (7.00am and 6.00pm Monday to Friday, and 9.00am to 3.00pm on Saturday), and meet the requirements to minimise daytime disruptions to tram services.
