Major works will commence on the South Yarra entrance to Melbourne’s Metro Tunnel in April 2019.
Metro Tunnel construction teams will work to unearth the tunnel entrance, which aims to untangle the City Loop to run more trains more often across Melbourne.
Victorian Premier, Daniel Andrews, said the Melbourne Metro Tunnel is Australia’s biggest transport project.
The tunnel will allow for 45 per cent more passengers across the Cranbourne and Pakenham, Frankston and Sandringham lines, who are set to save up to 50 minutes a day travelling where they need to go.
Construction works will happen across the metropolitan and regional train network from 1-23 April, with most of it taking place during the holiday period when less people use the network.
Network closures throughout autumn will also allow construction of other significant upgrades on the Ballarat line and more level crossing removal works in Carrum and Reservoir.
Minister for Transport Infrastructure, Jacinta Allan, said, “Crews will work around the clock to keep building the Metro Tunnel, while also preparing our network for bigger, better trains and delivering improvements for regional passengers.”
