time trenching works to be undertaken along the combined service route
alignment (install only)

All fencing works to be in accordance with the 'SCU - Guidelines for Delineation
Barriers' (refer Appendices). The removal of all fencing upon completion of works is
included within this scope of works.

Please see attached document for further information on the scope of works.
Tree Removal and Clearing and Grubbing16 Dec 202023 Dec 202023 Dec 2020
  
The scope of works relates to the Tree Removal, Clearing & Grubbing along the rail corridor between Donnybrook to Shepparton which has been divided into 12 Zones as shown in Figure 1 to enable construction of the new CSR route, Murchison East Loop and Shepparton Stabling Yard. The Corridor Zoning Maps in conjunction with the Ecology and CHMP Control Maps give a visual representation of the works which will need to occur per zone.

The work time applicable to the above elements has been broken down into the following based on rail corridor constraints:

- Normal Time
- Occupation Time
- ALBF

Please see attached document for further information on the scope of works.
Waste services16 Dec 202008 Jan 202108 Jan 2021
  
The works scope includes the provision of skip bins, wheelie bins and front lift bins (a range of sizes) for the following waste types generated from the Shepparton Line Upgrade Project:

- Office waste
- Construction and demolition (C&D) waste
- General waste to landfill

The Project has diversion from landfill requirements as per below to which the waste service provider would need to contribute to meeting these diversions from landfill percentages:

- Office waste - 60% of total volume to be diverted from landfill
- C&D - 90% of total volume to be diverted from landfill
- Clean spoil - <100% of total volume to be diverted from landfill

The waste services and requirements mentioned above will need to be provided for the project boundary which includes Donnybrook Railway Station to Shepparton. The project boundary is predominantly within the Shepparton rail corridor. The waste services will include providing specific waste receptacles/skips for specific waste such as steel, timber or concrete. The waste service provider would need to provide monthly waste reports showing the percentage of waste diverted from landfill. The waste service provider is required to work cooperatively with the Project on final destination waste audits.

Please see attached document for further information on the scope of works.
Murchison and Shepparton Lime Stabilisation Package16 Dec 202029 Jan 202129 Jan 2021

As part of the new crossing loop construction, the applicable civil drainage works are as follows:

- Trench for new drainage pipe/culverts
- Place bedding sand
- Lay pipe/culverts/headwalls/pits
- Backfill and compact
- Grout lifting lugs
- Place beaching around headwalls

The work time applicable to the above elements has been broken down into the following based on rail corridor constraints:
