Forum 3000 – Metro Tunnel Update

Hello to CBD residents!

For our regular Forum 3000 event this month, Thursday 3rd May, we invite you to meet with representatives from the Melbourne Metro Tunnel project.

The Cross Yarra Partnership (CYP) has been appointed by the Melbourne Metro Rail Authority (MMRA) to build the tunnels and stations for the Metro Tunnel Project. This includes the Town Hall Station which will connect to Flinders Street Station and the State Library Station which will connect to Melbourne Central Station.

At the meeting MMRA will provide a general update on works completed to date, including the early works in the city. CYP will provide an overview of their station designs, the program including a high-level timeline for delivery of the tunnels and stations in the CBD and a look ahead to upcoming works.

The guest speakers in attendance at the meeting will be:

  • Jodie Barrington – Cross Yarra Partnership
  • Emmett Ahern –  Melbourne Metro Rail Authority
  • Tye Norman –  Melbourne Metro Rail Authority
  • Barry McGuren –  Melbourne Metro Rail Authority
  • Lina Baulo –  Melbourne Metro Rail Authority

The event will take place in the convivial surroundings of the Kelvin Club where you can avail yourselves of their high class bar and our usual refreshments following the talks.

As an addition at this Forum 3000 event one of our special prizes will be drawn.
