Traffic woes for Melbourne with new rail tunnel construction

Published on : Thursday, May 26, 2016

Traffic woes for MelbourneThe construction of a major train tunnel in Australia’s second largest city can cause “years of major disruptions” on its metro rail network.

 
“The Metro Tunnel is the biggest transport project in Australia. There will be years of disruption getting it done, but the benefits for Melbourne will last for decades,” State’s Premier Daniel Andrews said.

 
Melbourne’s city square is expected to become a construction site for several years, while up to 1,000 trees will be cut down and public space acquired for the city’s Melbourne Metro Rail Project, the Environmental Effects Statement (EES) for the development revealed.

 
The project incorporates up to nine kilometers of underground rail lines, while five new stations are set to be built underground.

 
Work on the project is expected to begin in 2018 and finish by 2026.
