Melbourne Metro Tunnel & Stations PPP Project

Melbourne, Victoria

Benefits of the project:

Construction is underway on the $11b Metro Tunnel which will untangle the City Loop so more trains can run more often across Melbourne. The Metro Tunnel will create a new end-to-end rail line from Sunbury in the west to Cranbourne/Pakenham in the south-east, with high capacity trains and five new underground stations.

The Metro Tunnel will create capacity on the network to enable more than a half a million additional passengers per week across Melbourne’s train network to use the rail system during the peak periods. See the peak capacity increase for your train line. The project scope includes:

  • Twin nine-kilometre rail tunnels from the west of the city to the south-east as part of a new Sunbury to Cranbourne/Pakenham line.
  • Five new underground stations: North Melbourne (in the Arden precinct), Parkville (under Grattan Street), State Library (at the northern end of Swanston Street), Town Hall (at the southern end of Swanston Street) and Anzac (under the Domain Interchange on St Kilda Road). The two stations under Swanston Street will be directly connected to the City Loop at Melbourne Central and Flinders Street Station.
  • High capacity signaling to maximise the efficiency of the new fleet of High Capacity Metro Trains.
  • Train / tram interchange between Anzac Station and the Domain Interchange.
