Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    Consult the list of records in this series.

  • Function / Content
    These records were compiled by Melbourne Underground Railway Loop Authority (VA 2987) in preparation and during the construction of the Melbourne underground railway loop.

    The records include details of geological plans, services plans (Water, Gas, Electrical and Telecommunications), railway infrastructure and architectural plans that were required to plan and construct the Melbourne underground railway loop.

    The records also include plans containing the original layouts of underground services within Melbourne including tunnels, original planning for undergrounding of transport services including trams and plans of architectural buildings around the path of the loop.

    Researchers should note that only plans that were amended by Melbourne Underground Railway Loop Authority (MURLA) or created by contractors for MURLA were kept.

  • Recordkeeping System
    The plans in this series used a two number system. The first number indicated the location the plan related to (i.e. construction area) and the second number was a running number of plans placed into that section of plans.

    For example 400/003. The 400 relates to the Melbourne underground railway loop construction area 4 (covered under 400 contracts) and the 3 means that it is the third plan entered into the 400 set.

    Any numbers recorded past the hyphen were the original plan numbers from the issuing authority/contractor.
