MELBOURNE METRO RAIL

Date 25.02.2016 A new infrastructure project has began to improve living standards and productivity, as Melbourne is known as one of the worlds most liveable cities. If you’re someone who is wanting to migrate to Australia and live in Melbourne, it is said that this project can save households $3000 (£1,500) a year. Melbourne Metro’s twin nine-kilometre tunnels will take two of the busiest rail lines out of the City Loop, creating space for more trains to run more often across Melbourne’s rail network.

The project will create a new end-to-end rail line from Sunbury in the west to Cranbourne-Pakenham in the south-east, with high capacity trains and five new underground stations at Arden, Parkville, CBD North, CBD South and at Domain.

Melbourne Metro is critical to maintaining and enhancing Melbourne’s status as one of the world’s most liveable cities.

The scope of the project is:

Twin nine-kilometre rail tunnels from Kensington to South Yarra, travelling underneath Swanston Street in the CBD, as part of a new end-to-end rail line from Sunbury in the west to Cranbourne/Pakenham in the south-east Five new underground stations at Arden, Parkville, CBD North, CBD South and Domain Train/tram interchanges at Parkville and Domain Rail tunnel entrances at Kensington and South YarraSource: Melbourne Metro Rail
