CBD South Station
CBD stations are currently experiencing intense crowding at peak times. The use of the five City Loop stations is projected to almost double from 580,000 passengers a day to 1.1 million in 2031.
Building Melbourne's new Metro Tunnel will free up space in the City Loop so we can run more trains in and out of the city.
Once operational, Metro Tunnel's CBD North Station and CBD South Station will more evenly distribute passenger flow and interchange movements in the inner core of the Melbourne rail network, with crowding across all City Loop stations expected to drop by about 20 per cent.
