The City Rail Link C2 Enabling Works Contract was a highly complex, high-profile project for Auckland's CBD which required diversions of both live stormwater and sewer lines 18m underground. The tunnelling scope required 3D modelling and planning to ensure the works were carried out successfully.
Automated real time survey monitoring was implemented, providing detailed records of all project impacts, helping to mitigate concerns from stakeholders.
Ground water within the vicinity of the project was also closely monitored automatically in real time, with project bore holes with trigger level set.
All components of the C2 works involved significant excavations within a densely populated urban area. This created a complex interface of construction sites with urban streets and local stakeholders. Innovative techniques were developed to remove, treat, and dispose of groundwater. Complex arrangements of settlement tanks, silt busters, and flocking systems were implemented in order to successfully manage the environmental risks. This was then strictly monitored by a highly motivated environmental team.
To mitigate risks with odors during works on the OMS, a deoderising system was developed and implemented within the Victoria Street Shafts. Real time live dust monitoring was also implemented to track dust and monitor the construction techniques.
Works were also carried out in accordance with Mining and Tunnelling Regulations and those set by Worksafe.
