About the new station

The new underground station will be located near the corner of Arden Street and Laurens Street. The new station at Arden will be located within walking distance of the North Melbourne Recreation Centre and Arden Street Oval as well as the 57 tram and several bus routes. Read more about Arden Station.

The new underground station at Arden will be built via a 'cut and cover' method, with the station box excavated from the bottom up and a roof slab placed over the top of the site. Underground construction activities will take place 24/7 once the roof slab has been installed. Read more about building Arden Station.

Arden Station will support the expansion of the central city and provide a focus for the development of a new commercial, residential and activity centre. Visit the Renewing Arden Macaulay website (external website).
