New underground Stations
Melbourne is growing, but more trains cannot run in and out of the city because the City Loop is nearing capacity. To maintain a high quality of life in Australia’s fastest growing city, Melbournians needed a new way of moving around their city.
Arcadis is working with consortium CYP Design and Construction (CYP D&C) (led by Lendlease, John Holland and Bouygues) delivering the Tunnels and Stations package of the $11b Metro Tunnel Project, Victoria’s biggest ever public transport infrastructure project.
The Metro Tunnel will create a new end-to-end rail line from Sunbury in Melbourne’s west to Cranbourne/Pakenham in the south-east, with high capacity trains and five new underground stations. It will create capacity on the network to enable more than a half a million additional passengers per week across Melbourne’s train network to use the rail system during the peak periods.
The stations will also set a new benchmark in design, delivering five new architectural landmarks for Melbourne.
