Major construction is now complete on Parkville Station, which lies at the foot of the Royal Melbourne Hospital (RMH) Parkville site.

Parkville Station is the second of 5 new state-of-the-art stations to be finished as part of the Metro Tunnel.

The station will transform travel for thousands of medical staff, patients, families, students, teachers and researchers who travel to the Parkville precinct every day.

Parkville Station features a 54-metre-long steel and glass canopy filling the concourse with natural light.

Situated 32 metres below Grattan Street, the new station features entrances directly outside the RMH, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and The University of Melbourne.

It also has a 44m-long pedestrian underpass beneath Royal Parade to make crossing the road easier and safer.

A new level-access tram stop on Royal Parade opened last year. This will allow people to easily switch between trams and trains when the Metro Tunnel opens in 2025.

The RMH and the Metro Tunnel project team would like to thank staff, patients and the RMH Parkville community for their patience while works were being undertaken.
