Metro Tunnel


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.

Work is well underway at our five new stations and two tunnel entrances.

Major construction is continuing in 2020 with significant progress being made at each of the new station locations and tunnelling underway in the west between North Melbourne and Kensington.
