By untangling the City Loop,
the Metro Tunnel will benefit
train lines across the network
By taking our busiest train lines through a new tunnel under the city, the Metro Tunnel will free up space in the City Loop to run more trains in and out of the city.
That means more trains, more often across Victoria, with a less crowded and more reliable train network.
Building the massive 9km twin rail tunnels and five new underground stations will cause some unavoidable transport disruption.
Trams running again on St Kilda Road
Over the past two weeks we have undertaken works to realign the traffic, tram and bicycle lanes on St Kilda Road.
By realigning the traffic lanes, road and tram users can continue to use St Kilda Road and travel on public transport while construction of Anzac Station takes place.
Learn more about the 24/7 works during April.
Grattan Street closure
Grattan Street (between Royal Parade and Leicester Street), and Barry Street (between Pelham Street and Grattan Street) in Parkville is now closed to vehicles for up to five years.
Bus routes in the area have been diverted with new stops in place and new timetables introduced.
Learn about the Traffic changes in Parkville.
Have your say
We are seeking feedback on:
- a draft Planning Scheme Amendment (GC96) for proposed upgrades to the wider network including signalling and track work along the Sunbury, Pakenham, Cranbourne and South Morang lines.
- draft Development Plans for works at the Tunnel Entrances in South Yarra and Kensington.
Works are underway across Melbourne to build the Metro Tunnel. View details of current and upcoming works in each precinct.
Construction may impact how you travel. See the Changes to your Journey section for tips and information.
Locals and visitors are able to watch construction of the Metro Tunnel from new viewing areas at City Square.
