Follow-up of Metro Tunnel Project update …

With train testing now underway, our first Forum 3000 of the year was another exciting installment in this underground breaking story which has been unfolding over the past seven years, as we near our final destination to opening of Town Hall Station and State Library Station within the CBD, next year in 2025.

We thank the presenters from the Metro Tunnel Project team, as they continued with the latest installment of this captivating underground excavation and construction journey and the project nears completion.
