Metro Tunnel


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.

St Kilda Road

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

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.
