Metro Tunnel

Home

The Metro Tunnel will bring more trains to your suburb and reduce travel times by running the busy Cranbourne, Pakenham and Sunbury lines through a new tunnel.

Another tunnelling milestone has been reached with all four tunnel boring machines (TBM) now digging underneath Melbourne.

The launch of TBM Meg from the Arden Station site towards Parkville marks the first time all four TBMs have been tunnelling at the same time.
