Changes following Metro Tunnel works

Domain Interchange will be relocated to north of Park Street on St Kilda Road and will be renamed Stop 20 Park Street/St Kilda Road. This is to further facilitate the construction of the new Anzac Station near the Shrine of Remembrance.

Anzac Station will be an important interchange station between train and tram services, providing access to existing business precincts and growing residential areas in Southbank, South Melbourne and the expanding CBD west.

The Metro Tunnel will create a new end-to-end rail line from Sunbury to Cranbourne/Pakenham, with high capacity trains and five new underground stations. The two stations under Swanston Street will be directly connected to the City Loop at Melbourne Central and Flinders Street stations.
