About the project
Melbourne is growing, but more trains can't run in and out of the city because the City Loop is full.
The new Metro Tunnel will let more trains run in and out of the city by giving the Cranbourne, Pakenham and Sunbury lines their own tunnel through the CBD.
The Metro Tunnel's scope includes five new underground stations, with two new city stations directly connected to Flinders Street and Melbourne Central. View answers to frequently asked questions about the project.
Construction works will be delivered through a series of work packages.
New High Capacity Trains will run through the Metro Tunnel, freeing up more trains across the Melbourne rail network. More trains means fewer cars on the roads, helping to tackle congestion in our suburbs.
This is one of the many benefits Metro Tunnel brings to Victoria.
The project is being delivered by the Melbourne Metro Rail Authority (MMRA). MMRA is committed to growing our team to meet the evolving challenges and demands of the project.
