Metro Tunnel

Support for workplaces

Rail Projects Victoria (RPV) has a team of transport advisors to help keep your workplace moving while major construction of the Metro Tunnel is underway.

While the new tunnels and stations are built, road and public transport networks will be busier than normal and that could have an impact on four key areas of your workplace:

  • staff travel to and from the workplace
  • travel for your customers or other visitors
  • deliveries, collections and supplier access
  • business travel.

How we can help

Every organisation is unique and may be affected by the construction of the Metro Tunnel in different ways. We can help your organisation keep moving and mitigate the impacts by:

We can help you prepare for upcoming changes by:

  • Assisting you in developing a travel action plan for your workplace
  • Undertaking travel surveys to understand how your employees and visitors travel to and from the workplace
  • Providing up to date information about transport changes
  • Presenting to your employees, executive team and building managers
  • Sending you regular e-newsletters
  • Promoting public transport, cycling and walking at your workplace.

For large organisations tailored one-to-one advice is available from a dedicated travel advisor. To find out more information please contact us.

Travel advice for your organisation

The travel advice information booklets for organisations focus on the ways you could help keep your organisation moving while major construction is underway.

We have a range of resources and ideas for workplaces, universities, schools and hospitals to assist in supporting their employees, students, patients and visitors journeys during Metro Tunnel construction.

Examples are designed to prompt you to think about adapting your existing arrangements or implementing new solutions that suit how your workplace operates. You are best placed to know what will work most efficiently

Develop a Travel Action Plan

Developing a tailored travel action plan will help your organisation plan ahead for transport disruptions and be more resilient to transport impacts.

A travel action plan is a package of initiatives tailored to suit an organisation so the transport needs of staff, visitors, patients, students and/or suppliers can be managed – particularly during the construction of the Metro Tunnel. Every organisation's plan will be different and contain a mix of sustainable options that enable people to travel efficiently and safely to and from your workplace.

Surveying your staff & visitor travel behaviours

Undertaking a travel survey of your staff and / or visitors can help you understand travel behaviours, plan more effective initiatives and monitor performance.

We have already helped several organisations survey their staff and visitors. If you would like to know please contact us.

Stay informed

There are several ways you can stay informed on the project while the Metro Tunnel is built.

RPV can send you regular e-newsletters notifying your organisation of upcoming events, current transport conditions and ways we are helping other organisations (register).

You can also separately sign-up for all project updates and works notifications.

We also facilitate workshops and drop-in sessions for organisations to provide information on transport impacts and travel advice for staff, customers and suppliers. Contact us for more information.
