Cremorne Wharf Depot

October 2019

At the Cremorne Wharf Depot site, located on Lots Road, the team are working towards constructing a 45m deep shaft and interception chamber on site, to intercept the outfalls from the Lots Road Pumping station that currently pollutes the river at this site.

Before excavation can begin, the team are installing a number of piles around the perimeter of the structures to secure the ground contained within as they excavate. These piles will act as a primary lining for the first section of the shaft and interception chamber. 17 of the 52 piles have been driven into the ground for the shaft, and 28 of 52 for the interception chamber. We expect this activity will be ongoing until mid-November. Following which, the team will cast a concrete capping beam around the perimeter of both structures before excavating down.
