We want to hear from you

Stage One of Suburban Rail Loop will be subject to an Environment Effects Statement (EES) – Victoria’s most comprehensive and transparent environmental assessment process.

The EES will assess potential impacts on people and places associated with Stage One. Supported by a range of technical studies and assessments, the EES will carefully consider potential environmental, heritage, urban design, traffic and transport, business, social and land use impacts.

The EES for Stage One of Suburban Rail Loop needs to be assessed and project approvals granted before major construction can begin. As part of preparing the EES, we want to hear your feedback on Stage One, including areas, design considerations and construction impacts that are important to you.

Your feedback will enable us to give you the information that’s most relevant to you and will help us ensure that community feedback continues to help us shape Suburban Rail Loop’s planning and design.

You can tell us what you think by completing online surveys here.  

Stage One train stabling 

The Stage One alignment, including the train stabling at Heatherton, will be subject to a robust planning assessment and approval process.  

Local communities will have a number of opportunities to input into this process. Suburban Rail Loop Authority will work with local residents and traders during the planning and development stage and throughout future project stages of Suburban Rail Loop.  

Actively engaging with residents, businesses and other key stakeholders will help to inform project design and measures to minimise potential impacts on the local community.  

You can provide your feedback on the proposed train stabling at Heatherton, directly here.
