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.
Flinders Street traffic changes
Traffic changes and major construction will start soon as works to build a Metro Tunnel station entrance at Federation Square get underway.
Buses replace trains, Sun 23 Sept
