Arden Station in North Melbourne will be a catalyst for the urban renewal of this inner-city growth area by connecting more people to the CBD and the broader transport network.
Parkville Station will significantly improve access to Melbourne's key medical, research and education precinct, easing pressure on the road and tram network to the north of the CBD.
Domain Station will significantly improve access to St Kilda Road, the Shrine of Remembrance and Albert Park, reducing pressure on the road and tram network to the south of the CBD.
The Metro Tunnel will be nine kilometres long and will travel from Kensington to South Yarra via Swanston Street in the CBD.
Tunnel entrances will be built in Kensington in the vicinity of South Kensington Station, to connect in with the Sunbury line, and in South Yarra to the south of Toorak Road, to connect in with the Cranbourne / Pakenham line.
Construction of a new platform and track at West Footscray Station will enable trains to terminate and commence services at the station.
Franklin Street, Melbourne
To facilitate construction of CBD North station, part of Franklin Street has been closed between Swanston Street and Victoria Street for approximately five years 2017 with lane reductions on Franklin Street between Swanston Street and Elizabeth Street. In preparation for the temporary but extended closure, La Trobe Street and Victoria Street will undergo some changes.
Shrine of Remembrance Reserve
As part of the preparatory work for Domain Station, we are moving existing services away from the location of a station entrance at the edge of the Shrine of Remembrance reserve and installing new conduits for these services.
Platform screen doors
Platform screen doors will be a mandatory requirement for all platforms at each of the five stations. The platform screen doors must be full height and fit the dimensional requirements for the station platforms and the High Capacity Metro Train rolling stock. Each station will also be designed to integrate with some of the city's most important public spaces.
