Melbourne Metro rail tunnel

Melbourne Metro is a proposed double track rail tunnel to run from South Kensington in the west to South Yarra in the east, passing through five underground stations on the way through the centre of Melbourne. Getting any real detail out of Public Transport Victoria is like pulling teeth: these diagrams and artists impressions have been collated from various public sources, with annotations added by myself. Given planning is still underway, who knows how accurate my information is!

An artist impression of the proposed CBD South Station, which would be build beneath Flinders Street.
