Metro Tunnel to cut travel times

Train passengers on every metropolitan and regional train line will be able to enjoy reduced travel times to and from new destinations at Domain and Parkville, thanks to the Metro Tunnel.

Our new modelling shows travel times to the St Kilda Road employment and residential precinct and the Shrine of Remembrance will be slashed by up to 25 minutes in each direction, or 50 minutes a day, once the new Anzac Station is built.

Access to the Royal Melbourne Hospital, University of Melbourne and other key destinations in Parkville will be slashed by up to 20 minutes in each direction, or 40 minutes a day.

Passengers on the Cranbourne/Pakenham and Sunbury lines will benefit significantly once these lines start running through the Metro Tunnel and they swap a combination of train and tram travel for a direct rail connection.

People travelling on these lines each work day will save more than 4 hours a week to and from St Kilda Road and up to 3 and a half hours a week to and from Parkville.

Passengers across Melbourne will also benefit as the Metro Tunnel delivers quicker, more convenient journeys and hassle-free connections for tens of thousands of people each day.
