To facilitate the construction of the Metro Tunnel, Melbourne Metro Rail Authority (MMRA), the Victorian Government body responsible for delivery of the Metro Tunnel, has found it necessary to remove the Ash tree located at the corner of Bowen Street and Franklin Street. This removal is supported by an Arborist report which concluded that “it is not viable to retain the tree. It is recommended that the tree is removed in order to install the required services”.
What you need to know
- The tree being removed is not a scarred tree.
- As part of the reinstatement strategy, two trees will be replanted for the one removed within City campus.
