Upcoming Works at Cedarvale Station: Tunnel Invert Concrete Pour 

 

What Work Is Taking Place?

  • To prepare for track and system installation in the new LRT tunnels, concrete must be poured to form the foundation of the track. The site of the future Cedarvale will be used as the access points to the tunnels.
  • Trucks will access the tunnel shafts from both the east and west sides of Allen Road, pump concrete into a pipe, and drive the concrete down the tunnel to where it will be poured into place.

Noise Mitigation Efforts

  • White noise/broadband back-up alarms on all equipment/trucks. Broadband back-up alarms, unlike traditional truck back-up alarms, are only heard within the hazard area.
  • Where possible, Sound barrier enclosure will be installed around the ventilation fans, pipe, and concrete truck pump out area.
