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!

CBD South station, cutaway view of escalator access at City Square

Located on the corner of Collins and Swanston Streets, this view is looking south. It appears two flights of escalators will be required to get from the street to the first concourse level, two more flights to reach a second concourse, and then another set to get to the platforms themselves. Taken from a promotion blurb by engineering firm Aurecon. http://web.archive.org/web/20160312212948/http://www.aurecongroup.com/projects/transport/melbourne-metro-study
