NWRL Access to Cheltenham Oval

This drawing is taken from the EIS, showing the NWRL Project's intention to drive a "Heavy Vehicle Access" route through from Cheltenham Oval to Kirkham Street, so heavy trucks can remove the spoil from digging the access shaft down to the main tunnel.  We are advised that the project estimates about 1000 heavy truck movements over the one year construction period (about 5 per working day).
That road will then be maintained in perpetuity as an emergency access route for fire and other vehicles in the event of a disaster in the tunnel.
