Tunnels And Stations Planning Scheme Amendment (GC82)

A Planning Scheme Amendment was required following changes to the design and construction of the Metro Tunnel.

Cross Yarra Partnership, the appointed tunnels and stations contractor, identified refinements which will improve accessibility, reduce construction impacts and provide better outcomes for the delivery and operation of the Metro Tunnel.

Changes were also required to the Design and Development Overlay to incorporate the design refinements to protect the tunnels and stations from future nearby developments.

The Planning Scheme Amendment (GC82) was approved and published in the Government Gazette on 26 June 2018.
