Parkville station indicative design

Parkville station

The new Parkville station will significantly improve access to Melbourne's key medical, research and education precinct, easing pressure on the road and tram network to the north of the CBD.

The artist impression of the Metro Tunnel's Parkville station demonstrates the scale and high quality finish that can be expected of the Metro Tunnel's five underground stations.

This is one of five new stations that will be built as part of the project.

Expressions of Interest open

Expressions of Interest (EOI) are now being sought to deliver two Metro Tunnel work packages.

The Tunnel and Stations work package is a Public Private Partnership that will deliver the nine kilometre twin tunnels and five new underground stations.

The Rail Systems Alliance will design, develop and deliver signalling, communications and other related systems.

Details for both tenders can be found at the Victorian Government Tenders website.

Upcoming road closures

From Monday 23 May to Friday 27 May, we will be temporarily closing Franklin Street between Swanston Street and Victoria Street.

This closure will allow us to undertake preliminary investigations to identify and confirm the location of underground services.

This work will inform planning and design for the relocation or protection of services in the vicinity of the Melbourne Metro tunnels and stations.

For more details see the CBD road closures page. See the Works in your area page for details of other works planned and underway.
