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.
