The Victorian Government has unveiled the final life-size model of Melbourne’s new high capacity metro train.
Victorian Premier, Daniel Andrews, and Minister for Public Transport, Jacinta Allan, inspected the model train, which will be on public display at Birrarung Marr from 9 February 2018.
Over the course of 2017, Victorians provided 2500 pieces of feedback on the design of the 160m, seven-carriage train.
Feedback from accessibility and passenger groups, train drivers and technical experts led to 157 design improvements, including better hand holds, extra priority flip-down seating, and improved bike and pram zones.
Manufacturing of the 65 High Capacity Metro Trains will begin soon at Melbourne’s Newport workshops.
