Parkville is a world-class education, health and research precinct. The Metro Tunnel project will enhance public transport connectivity to the area and deliver a new underground station for Parkville
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.
The Parkville precinct is critical to Victoria's and Australia's leadership in biotechnology, medical research education and health services and draws people from across the metropolitan area and regional Victoria.
Over 32,000 people are currently employed in the Parkville precinct and many world-leading institutions and organisations based in Parkville are expanding, or plan to expand.
Parkville Station is expected to provide access to around 45,000 jobs, 14,000 residents and more than 70,000 tertiary students and high school students within 800 metres of its location. It will be used by nearly 60,000 passengers each day in 2031.
