Parkville Station connects this world-class education, health and research precinct to the rail network for the first time, and includes station entrances on the doorstep of The University of Melbourne and some of Victoria's biggest hospitals.
The new station provides a direct train connection to the area for the first time and will relieve pressure on local trams and roads.
Parkville Station will open in 2025 as part of the Sunbury to Cranbourne / Pakenham line.
Parkville Station will be built directly below Grattan Street between Royal Parade and Leicester Street and will have 4 entrances.
Two entrances will provide direct access to the University of Melbourne – the main entrance on Grattan Street opposite Barry Street, and a second entrance on the corner of Grattan Street and Royal Parade.
Two further entrances will provide direct access to the hospital precinct on the western side of Royal Parade, with 1 entrance located outside Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and the other located on the doorstep of The Royal Melbourne Hospital.
