Gallery | Melbourne's new metro stations revealed

Designs for five metro stations built as part of the $10.9bn (£6.1bn) Metro Tunnel Project in Melbourne have been revealed.

Architects HASSELL, Weston Williamson and Rogers Stirk Harbour and Partners designed the underground stations, which will be known as North Melbourne, Parkville, State Library, Town Hall and Anzac.

Melbourne’s Metro Tunnel Project will see high capacity rail services travel under the city through two 9km tunnels by 2025, easing congestion on the rail network and allowing more services for Melbourne’s growing population.

A consortium of Lendlease, Bouygues Construction, John Holland and Capella Capital – known as the Cross Yarra Partnership – is delivering the stations and tunnels as part of a 25-year design, finance, build and maintain contract worth roughly £3.4bn.

A Keller and Intrafor joint venture (KIJV) is providing geotechnical work for the stations under a £113M contract, including construction of the substructure retention walls and foundation piling for the stations.

In a joint statement, the architectural team said: “The stations open up to fresh air and natural light and the underground spaces have a generous civic quality that will feel safe and intuitive to use.

“But this project isn’t just about adding new stations, it actually creates five extraordinary new public buildings and transformative public places for Melbourne.”

As well as five stations and two rail tunnels, parks, pedestrian spaces and shopping zones will be built as part of the Metro Tunnel Project.
