Metro Tunnel

About the project

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.

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

The Sunbury and Cranbourne/Pakenham lines will be upgraded with next-generation high-capacity signalling to allow more trains to run more often and more reliably.
