Introducing Melbourne’s new $50b underground train network


Premier Daniel Andrews has revealed plans for a new underground railway system that will connect every line in southeast suburban Melbourne.

Clocking in at $50 billion dollars, the project is slated to begin construction in 2022.

According to Mr. Andrews, the underground rail loop could connect stations including Cheltenham, Clayton, Monash, Glen Waverley, Burwood and Box Hill, Doncaster, Heidelberg, Bundoora, Reservoir, Fawkner and Broadmeadows, as well as the Melbourne Airport.

Dubbed the “biggest public transport project in history” in a promotional video, the loop will “link every major rail line from the Frankston line all the way to Werribee making it easier to get around Melbourne between suburbs and to the airport.”
