CBD South railway station is a planned station to be built as part of the Melbourne Metro Rail Project. It will be built below Swanston Street between Flinders and Collins Streets.[1]

Initially it was planned to build the station using the cut-and-cover method, however this was changed.[2][3] Construction is scheduled to commence in 2018.
