Far below Melbourne’s streets, it’s a hive of activity as work progresses to build the city-shaping Metro Tunnel train line.
Two nine-kilometre tunnels will thread their way through our subterranean city between Kensington and South Yarra; taking passengers swiftly and safely to their destinations and freeing up the City Loop so more trains can run on other lines across Melbourne.
The Metro Tunnel is scheduled to open in 2025 and a project of this complexity requires the best engineering brains in the business.
Despite the challenges of COVID-19, work has continued – with appropriate safeguards in place – to build the five new stations (Arden, Parkville, State Library, Town Hall and Anzac) and the tunnels.
Through Open House Melbourne you can get an insider’s view of the Metro Tunnel Project with footage from inside the tunnels and stations, and a live interview on Saturday 25 July.
