Metro Tunnel: Cranbourne and Pakenham line benefits

September 9, 2019

The Cranbourne and Pakenham lines
run into the City Loop, with trains often delayed by
services on other lines. With only four City Loop tracks, there is simply not enough room
to run more train services. The Metro Tunnel will give Cranbourne and Pakenham lines a new underground path under the city, plus access to five new stations; at North
Melbourne, Parkville, State Library, Town Hall and Anzac Station,
in Domain. By untangling the City Loop, more trains can run between the suburbs and the CBD. The new stations at State Library and Town Hall will provide direct, hassle-free connections to the City Loop, at Melbourne Central and
Flinders Street Station. Instead of getting off a train and getting
on a tram to Parkville or St Kilda Road, passengers will save time by traveling
directly to these areas on a train. The Metro Tunnel, bigger and better high-capacity
trains, and other network improvements will create room for one hundred and twenty-one
thousand extra passengers at peak times on the Cranbourne and Pakenham
lines every week. So whether you live in Narre Warren,
Noble Park, or Dandenong, the Metro Tunnel will mean more trains and less delays on the Cranbourne and Pakenham lines.
