Metro Tunnel Interface

As part of the $11 billion Metro Tunnel Project, a new, state-of-the-art station is being built at the heart of the University of Melbourne's Parkville Campus.

The new station will provide a direct rail connection to Parkville, relieving pressure on local trams and roads, and enhancing access to the University of Melbourne and facilities such as the Royal Melbourne Hospital, the Royal Women’s Hospital, the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and the Royal Children’s Hospital.

As a major landowner and key stakeholder in Parkville the University of Melbourne has established a Metro Tunnel Interface project (MTIP) team to represent all University faculties and departments, as well as partner agencies during Metro Tunnel design and construction. The Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity (PDI) will also be represented by the project on issues that relate to joint interests.

In line with the University's Advancing Melbourne strategy the MTIP team are responsible for stakeholder engagement and communications activities that maximise opportunities for students, staff and other internal stakeholders and minimise risk and impacts on campus operations and the University community.
