Metro Tunnel


By untangling the City Loop,
the Metro Tunnel will benefit
train lines across the network

By taking our busiest train lines through a new tunnel under the city, the Metro Tunnel will free up space in the City Loop to run more trains in and out of the city.

That means more trains, more often across Victoria, with a less crowded and more reliable train network.

Building the massive 9km twin rail tunnels and five new underground stations will cause some unavoidable transport disruption.

St Kilda Road changes

Last month we realigned the car, tram and bicycle lanes on St Kilda Road, so traffic can continue to flow while construction of Anzac Station takes place.
