Overview of current works

The current works in Parkville are being delivered by a Managing Contractor, John Holland, and include site preparation, identifying underground services and the relocation and protection of these services, as well as road upgrades in preparation for construction.

About the new station

The new Parkville Station will be located under Grattan Street near Royal Parade, providing a direct rail connection to the area for the first time and relieving pressure on local tram and road networks. Read more about Parkville Station.

The new underground station at Parkville will be built via a 'cut and cover' method, with a roof  slab placed over the top of the site. Underground construction activities will take place 24/7 once the roof slab and acoustic treatments have been
installed.  Read more about building the Parkville Station.
