Melbourne’s Metro Tunnel Project is planning to consider the incorporation of a biophilic approach to the design of its railway stations, inspired by nature. Dr. Phillip Roös from Deakin University explains how urban planners can learn from these kinds of designs.
The Melbourne Metro Rail Authority has announced the successful contractor to undertake the rail upgrade, with construction earmarked for early this year.
CPB Contractors, as part of the Rail Systems Alliance (RSA), has been awarded works by the Victorian Government in support of the $11 billion Metro Tunnel Project, with the $6 billion tunnels and stations contract also finalised this week.
The various funds for Victorian infrastructure, as a response to rapid population growth, are quickly shaping the state’s future.
