The Metro Tunnel project will deliver a new underground train station – Anzac Station – on St Kilda Road directly opposite Melbourne Grammar School’s South Yarra campus. A tram ‘super stop’ is to be located above the station.
Ultimately, the development of Anzac Station is likely to have significant benefits for Melbourne Grammar School students and staff. However, we do recognise that there may be some challenges during the construction phase of the project.
As always, the health and welfare of our students and staff is our paramount consideration. Melbourne Grammar School is giving this project its highest level of attention, and proactively undertaking steps to identify and mitigate risks and issues arising from the project as a top priority.
The School is committed to providing its community members with regular updates about the project and the School’s plans for dealing with any issues arising. Parents will be advised of related matters through the School Bulletin. Information will also be provided here.
Update: March 2019
The School has received advice that, due to works in the local area, there may be some disruption to vehicular travel on roads near the South Yarra campus from 8pm Friday 22 March to 6am Monday 25 March. Further information is available here and on the Metro Tunnel website.
Update: February 2019
The construction of the new Anzac station will continue in the surrounds of Melbourne Grammar School (South Yarra campus) during 2019 as part of the Metro Tunnel project.
Information about the station construction, including works notifications, are available on the Metro Tunnel website, with specific information about the 2019 programme available here. Project updates and pertinent works notifications are also provided on the School website.
As is always the case, the health and safety of our students and staff is of paramount importance. Melbourne Grammar School is working closely with the construction contractor and relevant authorities to minimise the impact of the construction on students and staff. In addition, with major excavation work about to take place, we have sought information on the soil management arrangements, which may be found below.
Once completed, the Tunnel should provide significant benefit to students and staff as it will offer more transport options to our South Yarra campus.
We will continue to keep you informed of developments.
