Metro Tunnel eNews – TRANSFORMING MELBOURNE

The Metro Tunnel will breathe new life into worn-out CBD locations, with the project set to transform Melbourne above and below ground.

A strip of five buildings near the corner of Flinders and Swanston streets are being demolished to make way for the new station at CBD South.

Buildings at the northern end of the CBD are also being removed to make way for the new station near the corner of Swanston and La Trobe streets.

Demolition of CBD buildings will occur during normal working hours and is expected to be completed by March 2018, with works and some unavoidable disruption in the CBD likely to continue in the lead-up to the Christmas period.

We thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we undertake this city-shaping project.

The Metro Tunnel station naming competition ends this Sunday 22 October. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to name Melbourne’s five new underground stations and go in the draw to win exclusive prizes.

More than 36,000 suggestions have been made so far. Suggestions cover a diverse range from Aboriginal and geographic names to local landmarks and historical figures.

Suggestions referencing pop culture are also popular including Station McStationface, Game of Thrones and Simpsons-themed names.

An advisory panel will assess all suggestions and compile a shortlist for each station for the Victorian Government’s consideration.

People who suggest one of the names chosen will go into a draw to win an exclusive behind the scenes tour of the Metro Tunnel worksites and the massive Tunnel Boring Machines, as well as an exclusive sneak peak of ‘their’ station just before it opens to the public.

Enter the competition.

ON YOUR BIKE
The Metro Tunnel team provided information to cyclists at Ride2Work day this week at Bicycle Network breakfasts in Docklands and North Melbourne.

Construction of the Metro Tunnel Project will see some changes to cycling routes, and cyclists may need to consider changes to their journeys to avoid or minimise delays.

See the website for more information on changes to cycling routes.
