Metro Tunnel

Home

The Metro Tunnel will get our train network moving.

By untangling the City Loop, the Metro Tunnel will benefit train lines across the network.

Building the massive 9km twin rail tunnels and five new underground stations will cause some unavoidable transport disruption.

From this month there will be long-term lane closures to St Kilda Road and a closure of Grattan Street in Parkville.

Find out more about disruptions and how to plan changes to your journey.

Grattan Street

Grattan Street closure

From 22 February 2018, Grattan Street (between Royal Parade and Leicester Street), and Barry Street (between Pelham Street and Grattan Street) in Parkville will close to vehicles for up to five years.

Bus routes in the area will be diverted with new stops in place and new timetables introduced.

Learn about the Traffic changes in Parkville.

St Kilda Road

St Kilda Road changes

St Kilda Road has been reduced to one lane in each direction between Dorcas Street and Toorak Road.

Due to changed traffic conditions including lane reductions along St Kilda Road, motorists should allow up to 15 minutes extra travel time.

Learn about the changes to St Kilda Road.
