Supporting local traders

The Metro Tunnel Project is always looking for ways to support local businesses close to our work sites.

Our dedicated support team has been working with businesses since 2015 to minimise, manage and affect potential impacts from construction.

Our latest initiative, Small Business Clinics, is for traders located around the site of the new Anzac Station in St Kilda Rd.

Delivered by the Small Business Mentoring Service, the clinics provide business owners expert support and advice across a range of topics including marketing, digital media, business growth and finance.

More than 20 businesses attended the free clinics during October and November, with most sessions booked out.

The clinics are just one of a number of initiatives the project’s Business Engagement and Support Team is providing businesses to address disruption including way-finding signage, events, offers, vouchers and promotional support through hoardings and social media.  

The size and complexity of the Metro Tunnel Project means there will be some unavoidable temporary disruption during its construction. We are working to minimise and manage impacts while we build this urgently-needed public transport infrastructure.

Moray St bike path upgrade

The Metro Tunnel’s Moray St bike path upgrade will be finished in coming weeks.

The upgrade gives cyclists, pedestrians and motorists a reliable alternative to St Kilda Rd during the construction of Anzac Station.

With the support of the City of Port Philip, nearly 1.5km of bike path has been upgraded with two new Victoria-first roundabouts opening at Coventry and Dorcas streets.

Speed limits have been reduced to 40kmh and cars are required to give way to cyclists and pedestrians using the roundabouts.

This upgrade improves safety for cyclists and pedestrians and makes it faster and more convenient to get around.

The Metro Tunnel is upgrading roads and improving traffic management near worksites to keep the city moving throughout construction.

Please take care when adjusting to the new traffic conditions in the area.
