New city rail tunnel to be announced

MELBOURNE is set to receive a new rail tunnel, with the Herald Sun reporting today that Premier John Brumby will unveil plans for the new line as part of the $38 billion Victorian Transport Plan.

The new train line will link Flinders St station with Melbourne Central and Parkville where it will then join up with the Footscray line, allowing access to the Parkville university and health precinct and reducing congestion on Melbourne's north and west railway lines.
