The Metro Tunnel Creative Program has been designed to support the Metro Tunnel Project’s Creative Strategy (PDF, 10.9 MB).


  • dynamic sites of creativity
  • manage construction impacts
  • line-wide identity
  • welcoming and people focused places
  • creative opportunities and engagement
  • showcase Melbourne.

The Strategy also states that interventions occurring during the construction phase should be underpinned by the following principles.


  • manage construction impacts – protecting what makes Melbourne great
  • maintain the city’s activity and vibrancy – supporting Melbourne’s businesses and residents
  • provide opportunities for local creative practitioners, artists and communities during the construction phase as we strive to manage disruption from the construction of the Metro Tunnel
  • imagine the city as a laboratory – trialling new ideas and engaging with the project as it develops.
