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.


Updates

Please be advised that tree removal will take place on Franklin Street, between Swanston Street and Stewart Street, on 18 November. The removal of nine trees is required to enable service relocation works to take place on Franklin Street, in preparation for an access shaft to be built.

From Wednesday 15 February, Metro Tunnel will be undertaking night works to continue service relocation works within the area. This work needs to be completed at night to ensure traffic on the road and tram networks can continue to operate unimpeded. The works are expected to take up to five nights over a two-week period and will affect Victoria Street, Swanston Street and Franklin Street. For more information, refer to Metro Tunnel Works Notification Night Works, CBD North.
