Improving connections across Melbourne
The Metro Tunnel Project will untangle the City Loop by taking three of Melbourne’s busiest train lines through a new tunnel under the city. It will create a new end-to-end train line from Sunbury to Cranbourne/Pakenham, with twin nine-kilometre tunnels and five new underground stations at North Melbourne (formerly known as Arden), Parkville, Anzac, and two new CBD stations - State Library and Town Hall - which will directly connect to the City Loop via underground pedestrian walkways.
