Domain Metro Station unveiled

10 Aug 2017

Domain Metro Station unveiled Image

By Kate Mani

The new Domain Metro Station will lessen pressure on St Kilda Road and Swanston Street tram routes and generate greater access to Melbourne landmarks, as part of the Metro Tunnel Project.

The design and builders for the major tunnelling works and five underground stations have been announced, including Southbank’s local Domain Station, which will sit below the current Domain tram interchange on St Kilda Rd.

The Cross Yarra Partnership consortium, comprising Lendlease Engineering, John Holland, Bouygues Construction and Capella Capital, has been selected for the project, following competitive bids from internationally recognised designers and builders.

Utility service relocations, construction site preparations and tram works are currently underway, with major tunnelling and station constructions to begin next year.

The Domain station’s aesthetic design has been carefully planned to reflect the surrounding parkland and the Shrine of Remembrance, and will consist of bluestone, granite and timber.

The inside of the station will include retail outlets, installations and feature a natural skylight.

Four entry points near the Shrine of Remembrance grounds, at Albert Road Reserve and near the train-tram interchange on St Kilda Road will provide underground access through escalators, lifts and stairs.

The station will mean improved entry to sites such as the Shrine of Remembrance, the Royal Botanic Gardens and Albert Park.

It will also allow interchanging with City Loop services, including a direct underground connection to link the CBD North station with the Melbourne Central concourse.

The Metro Tunnel project as a whole will transport passengers from the southern end of Swanston Street under the Yarra River, CityLink, Domain Parklands and St Kilda Road.

After arrival at Domain Station, the route will curve towards Toorak Road and then exit the tunnel in South Yarra, joining the existing Cranbourne-Pakenham line.
