About the project
By taking three of 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 to the suburbs and regional Victoria, with a less crowded and more reliable train network.
New High Capacity Trains will run through the Metro Tunnel, freeing up more trains across the Melbourne rail network. See how Metro Tunnel will benefit your rail line
More trains also means fewer cars on the roads, helping to tackle congestion in our suburbs. These are some of the many benefits Metro Tunnel brings to Victoria.
