A tunnelling shed is being constructed in Yarraville that will end up being bigger than the Altona Bunnings.

The shed, on the corner of Somerville Road and Whitehall Street, will reduce noise and dust while the West Gate Tunnel is being built.

Over 500 staff will be employed at the site, helping to dig up more than an MCG’s worth of dirt and rock.

The West Gate Tunnel will provide Melburnians with an alternative to the West Gate Bridge and remove thousands of trucks from residential streets. Construction began early this year and the project will be completed in 2022.
