Metro Tunnel


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

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

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

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

Work to build the massive 9km twin rail tunnels and five new underground stations is underway.
