Metro Tunnel


By untangling the City Loop,
the Metro Tunnel will benefit
train lines across the network

Building the massive 9km twin rail tunnels and five new underground stations will cause some unavoidable transport disruption.

From this month there will be long-term lane closures to St Kilda Road and a closure of Grattan Street in Parkville.

Find out more about disruptions and how to plan changes to your journey.

Grattan Street

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.

St Kilda Road

St Kilda Road changes

St Kilda Road has been reduced to one lane in each direction between Dorcas Street and Toorak Road.

Due to changed traffic conditions including lane reductions along St Kilda Road, motorists should allow up to 15 minutes extra travel time.

During April, buses will replace trams along St Kilda Road so additional works can take place. Visit the Public Transport Victoria website for details.

Information session

Have your say

We are seeking feedback on a draft Planning Scheme Amendment (GC82) for tunnel and stations construction works which includes changes to the Design and Development Overlays.

The changes reflect refinements which will improve accessibility, reduce construction impacts and provide better outcomes for the delivery and operation of the Metro Tunnel.
