Site Visit - Victorian Tunnelling Centre
The Victorian Tunnelling Centre (VTC) at Holmesglen Institute’s Drummond Street campus in Chadstone offers specialist training to workers in the construction and operation of a variety of tunnels including rail, road, and utilities tunnels.
Join CSG for a tour of this unique facility that includes a replica mined tunnel and a replica rail/Tunnel Boring Machine tunnel similar to the Metro Tunnel, with a full-height entrance, two multi-purpose engineering workrooms and training facilities, including tunnel shaft and concrete lining spray simulators, as well as augmented and virtual reality experiences. A cutterhead, a refuge chamber and the only four-motion bridge and gantry crane located in a TAFE also form part of the facility.
The Australian-first tunnelling training centre is training thousands of workers as part of the Victorian Government's rail projects.
Tours are designed to raise awareness of what it is like to work in tunnel construction and tunnel operations, and are led by industry experts with extensive knowledge in civil and tunnelling construction and operations, and virtual and augmented reality.
Attendees must wear long sleeves, pants and flat closed-toe shoes (no skirts, high heels, sandals or ballet flats allowed). Hi-vis vests and hard hats will be provided on arrival.
