More than a rail line
Suburban Rail Loop is a city and state-shaping project that will change how we move around Melbourne, opening new possibilities in the neighbourhoods associated with new stations.
With high tech turn-up-and-go trains and new stations connecting our middle suburbs, Suburban Rail Loop will deliver fast and convenient travel between major hospitals, universities and TAFEs, shopping and employment centres and the airport.
The transformational project will be the biggest infrastructure investment ever undertaken in Victoria and will be completed in stages, with work on Stage One in the south-east to start in 2022.
The broad alignment and precinct locations have been confirmed for Stage One, which will include new underground stations at Cheltenham, Clayton, Monash, Glen Waverley, Burwood and Box Hill.
Engineering assessments and stakeholder engagement are underway to help determine the detailed alignment and station locations.
Suburban Rail Loop will revolutionise our public transport system, but the benefits don’t end at the station.
In Australia’s fastest growing city, a project such as Suburban Rail Loop and the investment it attracts, gives us the unique opportunity to plan the services, amenity and infrastructure Melbourne will need outside the CBD to maintain its enviable reputation as one of the world’s most liveable cities.
