New underground stations
THE METRO TUNNEL PROJECT WILL DELIVER FIVE NEW UNDERGROUND STATIONS.
New underground stations will provide access to the train network at Arden, Parkville and Domain, and the two new CBD stations will directly connect to the City Loop stations.
This station is located in North Melbourne, a suburb with a mix of commercial, industrial, retail and community facilities. Situated near the corner of Arden Street and Laurens Street, it will trigger significant urban renewal in the Arden-Macaulay precinct, an area rich in industrial history.
The station is located under Grattan Street near Royal Parade, on the doorstep of Victoria’s world-renowned education, health and research precinct. It will provide access to facilities such as the University of Melbourne, the Royal Melbourne Hospital and the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre.
The station at the northern end of the CBD will be located under Swanston Street, between La Trobe Street and Franklin Street. It will provide easy access to RMIT, the State Library and the City Baths, and include an underground pedestrian connection to Melbourne Central Station.
The station at the southern end of the CBD will be located under Swanston Street, between Flinders Street and Collins Street. It will improve access to some of Melbourne’s most iconic and important tourist destinations including St Paul’s Cathedral, the Arts Centre and Southbank. The station will have entrances at City Square and Federation Square and a connection with Flinders Street Station.
The new station at Domain will be located under St Kilda Road near the intersection of Albert Road and Domain Road. The new station will improve access to the St Kilda Road employment and residential precinct and make it easier to visit some of Melbourne’s most treasured public spaces, such as the Royal Botanic Gardens, Albert Park and the Shrine of Remembrance.
Extending from Kensington in the west to South Yarra in the south-east, the Metro Tunnel will involve construction of two nine-kilometre twin rail tunnels and five new underground stations. Explore our interactive map to see concept images of each station.
