Metro Tun­nel

Time Out (Melbourne) - - Future Melbourne -

What is it: An un­der­ground rail tun­nel from the Do­main on St Kilda Road, through the CBD and into North Mel­bourne via Parkville. When will it open? 2026

This is the big one. Con­struc­tion of the $10.9 bil­lion Metro Tun­nel – Vic­to­ria’s big­gest-ever trans­port project – com­menced ear­lier this year, block­ing off City Square and parts of the north­ern CBD. When fin­ished, the Metro Tun­nel will free up the City Loop bot­tle­neck. The five new sta­tions will mean that get­ting from Flin­ders Street Sta­tion up to Mel­bourne Uni­ver­sity and Carl­ton will be faster than ever be­fore. The new sta­tion of Ar­den will ser­vice the new sub­urb of the same name, cur­rently an in­dus­trial cor­ner of Mel­bourne’s in­ner west. You can visit the Metro Train web­site to see what the new sta­tions will look like – all sweep­ing arches, wide sky­lights and screen doors sep­a­rat­ing the train doors in the plat­form.
