Victoria's Minister for Public Transport Jacinta Allan and the newly-elected lord mayor Sally Capp have revealed the final designs for Melbourne's five new Metro Tunnel stations.
The $11 billion project, constructed by The Cross Yarra Partnership – a consortium led by Lendlease Engineering, John Holland, Bouygues Construction and Capella Capital – will run for 39km between Melbourne's west and south-east.
The five new stations, which will be known as North Melbourne, Parkville, State Library, Town Hall and Anzac, will draw on the local character of each location in their design and layout.
Architecture firm Hassell in collaboration with Weston Williamson and London-based Rogers Stirk & Harbour and Partners are responsible for the Metro Tunnel designs.
“The final designs for the Metro Tunnel’s five new underground train stations will deliver the best passenger experience in stunningly designed and spacious settings,” Allan said.
“The Metro Tunnel will deliver five new architectural landmarks for Melbourne and the turn-up-and-go train system our city needs.”
