Have Your Say on the Melbourne Metro Rail Project

The Melbourne Metro Rail Project will deliver two nine-kilometre rail tunnels from South Kensington in the west to South Yarra in the inner east as part of a new Sunbury to Cranbourne/Pakenham line, and five new stations at Arden, Parkville, CBD North, CBD South and Domain.

Between October and December last year we sought community feedback on the plans for the project. This site closed for comments on Friday 11 December but there will be further opportunities to be a part of the conversation.

You can also contact us with any questions or comments via email or phone.

Visit our full website for more information about the project.

Next steps

The planning and environmental approvals process for the Melbourne Metro Rail Project will involve a Planning Scheme Amendment and other statutory approvals informed by an Environment Effects Statement. We will use the information gathered to prepare our official planning documents.

As with any Environment Effects Statement process, there will be opportunities throughout the assessment process for the community and stakeholders to have their say and to make submissions. These submissions will be reviewed by a planning panel allowing for independent consideration of issues and recommendations made to the Minister for Planning.

    The new Domain station will significantly improve access to St Kilda Road, the Shrine of Remembrance and Albert Park, reducing pressure on the road and tram network to the south of the CBD.

    The station is proposed to be located under St Kilda Road, near the intersection with Albert Road and Domain Road, significantly enhancing access to this important commercial, residential and recreational area.

    Download the Domain station brochure (PDF) to learn more about the station location, entry points, improvements for pedestrians, and road access during construction.

    Melbourne Metro will see two underground stations located at the northern and southern ends of the CBD in Swanston Street.

    These stations will relieve growing congestion at existing City Loop stations and cater for higher levels of passenger movement through the city. They will be designed to allow passengers to conveniently interchange with City Loop services at Melbourne Central and Flinders Street stations.

    Download the CBD stations brochure (PDF) for an overview of the station locations, entry points, improvements for pedestrians, and construction information.

    Arden station will be positioned south of Arden Street in the vicinity of Laurens Street in North Melbourne. It will be a catalyst for the urban renewal of this inner-city growth area by connecting more people to the CBD and the broader transport network.

    Demand is expected to grow rapidly as the area develops, with Arden set to be a vibrant extension of the central city with a range of office, community, retail and residential uses.

    We are looking at Melbourne Metro’s impacts on the environment, heritage, urban design, traffic and transport, as well as the economic and social implications. What aspects of these do you think are the most important?
