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.
