All four of the Metro Tunnel’s tunnel boring machines (TBMs) are now digging the project’s twin tunnels across Melbourne, with the launch of TBM Meg from the Arden site in North Melbourne
Creating some 7000 jobs over the life of the project, the Metro Tunnel is a critical piece of the puzzle in keeping Victorians in work and our state on-track for recovery.
Works are underway to remove three dangerous level crossings and build two new stations in Cheltenham and Mentone – with a one-week rail closure beginning today as construction ramps up.
Construction on stage two of the $1.4 billion Monash Freeway upgrade has begun, with the centre median of the corridor to be transformed into a work site.
The removal of Williamstown’s Ferguson Street level crossing is another step closer, with design options to be presented to the community for feedback as planning for the project continues.

The first section of the Metro Tunnel is now complete – with the first tunnel boring machine, Joan, today breaking through to complete the journey from Arden Station to the tunnel’s western entrance in Kensington.
Major road and rail upgrades in Melbourne’s west are powering ahead, as construction starts on a new road bridge to remove a dangerous and congested level crossing in Werribee.
Preliminary work has started to upgrade the Sydney to Edgars Road section of the M80 Ring Road and stage two of the Monash Freeway
