Metro Tunnel

Rail Infrastructure Early Works

The plan has been approved to guide the delivery of early works for the tunnel entrances.

The Rail Infrastructure Alliance (RIA) will build the tunnel entrances in Kensington and South Yarra, including cut and cover tunnelling, decline structures and the reconfiguration and realignment of existing lines to connect the new Metro Tunnel to the existing rail network.

A range of early works are now underway to prepare the area for construction.

The RIA Early Works Plan includes information about:

  • utility relocation
  • site preparation and associated construction activities
  • demolition works
  • tree removal
  • changes to the local road network and parking.
