North Melbourne's new Arden Station begins to take shape
Posted: 05 May 2021
Works are ramping up on construction of the Metro Tunnel’s new Arden Precinct in North Melbourne, as the station’s platforms and brick arches begin to take shape.
The station’s internal walls are in place, construction on the roof slab is near completion and crews have begun to install mechanical, electrical and plumbing services in the station box.
The station's Laurens Street entrance will feature 15 soaring brick arches, which are currently being built off-site with more than 100,000 locally-made bricks and will be delivered to the site over the next few months.
Work began last month on Laurens Street to realign traffic and bike lanes and add a new pedestrian crossing.
Arden Station will have a direct link to the Airport in 2029 and be within walking distance of the North Melbourne Recreation Centre, Arden Street Oval and the route 57 tram.
