Metro Tunnel


The Metro Tunnel will bring more trains to your suburb and reduce travel times by running the busy Cranbourne, Pakenham and Sunbury lines through a new tunnel.

On 20 February we marked five years since work began and the milestones keep coming as work advances on worksites between Kensington and South Yarra.

Major construction is continuing in 2020 with significant progress being made at each of the new station locations and tunnelling underway in the west between North Melbourne and Kensington.
