Metro, together with our project partners, is working hard to ensure our team is ready to welcome passengers to the Metro Tunnel in 2025.
Our commitment to construction, testing and operation of the Metro Tunnel is driven by our desire to leave a positive legacy for future generations. We’re working collaboratively across our business and with our project delivery partners to ensure Melbournians can access a world-class railway.
• Twin 9-kilometre tunnels will carry bigger trains and more people through the heart of the city.
• New High Capacity Signalling technology will allow us to run more trains closer together safely – easing pressure on the City Loop, creating more services and reducing delays.
• Platform Screen Doors will improve passenger safety and boarding times, help manage station temperatures, and improve tunnel ventilation.
• Our five new world class underground stations will connect passengers to residential, retail and commercial areas, major university and hospital precincts, Melbourne landmarks, and the City Loop.
A significant testing and commissioning program will ensure every piece of new technology is safe and working together with new bigger, better trains, alongside the wider network’s existing signalling system.
