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 changes
Last month we realigned the car, tram and bicycle lanes on St Kilda Road, so traffic can continue to flow while construction of Anzac Station takes place.
Learn more about the changes to St Kilda Road.
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.
Learn about the Traffic changes in Parkville.
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.
Archaeological digs will take place at our CBD station locations with opportunities for community participants.
