“In delivering Melbourne Metro Tunnel Project –– one of the biggest public transport projects in Victoria’s history – Lendlease is delighted to play a role in helping Melbourne cement its status as the world’s most liveable city.

“The project, which will allow Lendlease to leverage its expertise acoss the disciplines of engineering, development, building and finance, will greatly enhance connectivity across Melbourne while revitalising landmarks across the city,” he said.
