The Victorian Government will make a decision on the five station names after considering a shortlist compiled by an Advisory Panel.

TIPS FOR COMPLYING WITH THE STATE'S NAMING RULES

Update


Victorians may end up with a Dusty Martin station or Jumpin’ Jack Riewoldt stop after Tigers fans made last-minute submissions on the names for Melbourne’s newest railway stations.

Sunday was the final day to enter the public vote to name the $11 billion Metro Tunnel’s five new stops.

The government has received 36,000 entries.

Public Transport Minister Jacinta Allan said suggestions reflected Melbourne’s history. There were also offerings from The Simpsons and Game of Thrones.

Also featured strongly were landmarks such as Federation Square, the University of Melbourne and RMIT, St Paul’s Cathedral, the Shrine of Remembrance and the State Library of Victoria.

Many people were keen to recognise Victoria’s Aboriginal heritage with names such as Djadjawurung and Boonwurrung.

More than 200 people from more than 50 countries, including the United States, Colombia, Iran and Myanmar, have also had a say.

An tongue-in-cheek suggestion was Smashed Avo station.
