Heritage Permits

A number of sites and locations along the Metro Tunnel are of heritage significance. In some cases these sites are registered on the Victorian Heritage Register and require a heritage permit to be approved before are undertaken.

Heritage permit applications have been submitted to Heritage Victoria for heritage works and tree removal in the Domain precinct associated with the St Kilda Road tram/road realignment and setup of a Tunnel Boring Machine support facility at Edmund Herring Oval.
