We're building the Metro Tunnel

As part of Victoria’s Big Build, we’re building the Metro Tunnel. Twin nine kilometre tunnels have been dug under the city and construction is underway on five undergound stations. The Metro Tunnel will connect the Cranbourne, Pakenham and Sunbury lines.

We’re currently testing High Capacity Signalling technology, with trains running through the tunnel between east and west.

As a result of these works, buses replace trains at various times on sections of the Sunbury, Cranbourne and Pakenham lines.

Planned maintenance and renewal works undertaken by Metro Trains Melbourne will also continue to ensure the safety and efficiency of Melbourne's metropolitan rail network.
