Metro Tunnel


Works underway

Work has started in the CBD North area in preparation for major construction.

To facilitate work we have closed Franklin Street and A'Beckett Street and reopened Stewart Street for one-way northbound traffic from A'Beckett Street.

The works include relocating and protecting utilities such as gas, power and telecommunications services. Find out about work taking place in your area.

Queensberry Street

In preparation for a long term closure of Grattan Street, Queensberry Street will be widened to two traffic lanes between Elizabeth and Rathdowne streets.

This will increase capacity by giving road users heading east-west across the city an additional option to Grattan and Victoria streets.

Find out more about these planned changes to Queensberry Street and how to provide feedback.

Green light for Metro Tunnel

The Environment Effects Statement assessment for the Metro Tunnel has been released, paving the way for major construction to start early this year.

Minister for Planning Richard Wynne completed the assessment after reviewing the EES, public submissions and an independent Inquiry and Advisory Committee report.

The assessment is available from the DELWP website.

Summertime roadworks

Works to progress the CityLink Tulla Widening Project, the Western Distributor Project and the Level Crossing Removal Projects will take place this summer, as well as VicRoads works on the West Gate Bridge.

These works can cause major delays so to find out more, including times, dates and detour information, visit the VicRoads website.

Learning from Crossrail

State Government Treasurer Tim Pallas has visited London's Crossrail as part of Metro Tunnel's continuous efforts to learn from other major infrastructure projects.

Key personnel from the Melbourne Metro Rail Authority have also visited Crossrail earlier in the year to learn how their engineers were able to overcome the challenges of tunnelling under busy inner city environments, including some of the oldest public gardens in the world.
