Melbourne Metro Rail Project

Melbourne Metro Rail Project

The Melbourne Metro Rail Project is the construction of a rail tunnel from South Kensington station to South Yarra under the city of Melbourne.

Works commenced in late 2016 under a Andrews (Labor) Government, with major construction starting in 2018 and completion in 2026.

The Metro Tunnel includes five new underground stations, with two new city stations directly connected to Flinders Street and Melbourne Central.

New High Capacity Trains will run through the Metro Tunnel, freeing up more trains across the Melbourne rail network.

Free up Melbourne's biggest bottleneck


We're building the Metro Tunnel to eliminate congestion in Melbourne's City Loop, by running three of our busiest lines through a new tunnel.

It's a huge project and there will be road and public transport disruptions, but it will untangle the network and create more space for more trains.

* More train services at peak times to and from the outer suburbs
* Around 5,000 new jobs created
* Direct rail connections to universities, hospitals and recreation areas
* Five new underground stations - two directly connected to the City Loop



ST KILDA ROAD DISRUPTIONS


To prepare for major construction we will make some changes to the road and public transport network to help keep Melbourne moving.

There will be traffic changes on St Kilda Rd and Toorak Rd West between Friday 2 June and Tuesday 11 July.

During this time there will be lane closures and buses replacing trams, so plan ahead.
