The Metro Tunnel Project

The Metro Tunnel Project is one of the largest public transport projects ever undertaken in Australia and the first major investment in Melbourne’s CBD rail since the City Loop was completed 30 years ago.

It will free up space in the City Loop, which will allow more trains to run in and out of the city with its ‘turn-up-and-go’ services and make travel to and from RMIT easier.

As part of the Metro Tunnel Project, a new underground station is being built on the doorstep of RMIT.

The University is excited to be a key stakeholder in this project. Works on the Metro Tunnel have begun and we will endeavour to keep you updated on developments and opportunities for engagement as the project progresses.

Your safety

There is a lot of activity around campus and it is important that care is taken around projects. This includes being aware of activity while crossing roads and pathways and heeding the instructions of any traffic wardens.

Watch for crossing trucks; be aware if you are crossing between projects; follow the traffic laws and think about the route you are choosing. It might take a minute longer to get where you are going but it’s better to be safe!
