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.
