Due for completion in 2025

Construction has commenced on Melbourne’s Metro Tunnel. The project will create capacity on the network to enable more than half a million additional passengers per week across Melbourne’s train network.

The Metro Tunnel Project includes an end-to-end rail line from Sunbury in the West to Cranbourne/Pakenham in the South-East, with high capacity trains and five new underground stations

The Project Scope includes:

  • Twin nine-kilometre rail tunnels from the West of the city to the South-East as part of a new Sunbury to Cranbourne/Pakenham line
  • Five new underground stations with connectivity to local prominent precincts. The two stations under Swanston Street- State Library and Town Hall -  will be directly connected to the City Loop at Melbourne Central and Flinders Street
  • Train/Tram interchange between Anzac Station and the Domain Interchange on St Kilda Road

Donald Cant Watts Corke (Infrastructure) is providing cost planning assurance in the form of the measurement and cost estimation of circa 400 design packages for the five new underground stations. The design packages will pass through two levels of design i.e. concept and detailed design before the ‘Issued for Construction’ phase.

Their selection was based on their strong and solid background in the mechanical and electrical engineering field. Their expertise, forward thinking and ongoing ability to support us in this space has been a key part of the project preparing to move into the design, procurement and construction phase”
