Suburban Rail Loop

The Suburban Rail Loop will transform Victoria’s public transport system and connect Melbourne’s middle suburbs, linking every major rail line from the Frankston line to the Werribee line, via the airport.

And with three transport super hubs at Clayton, Broadmeadows and Sunshine – regional passengers will also benefit, no longer having to travel through the CBD to get to work, our world-class hospitals or universities in the suburbs.

This is a project that will fundamentally change the way we travel, connecting Victorians to jobs, education, healthcare – and most importantly, to each other.

This Budget invests $2.2 billion to kick-off initial and early works on Stage One running between Cheltenham and Box Hill – laying the groundwork for tunnelling, including preparation of our tunnel boring machine launch sites and geotechnical investigation.

Not only will this investment kick-start work on this city and State-shaping project, it’ll support initially up to 800 jobs – getting more Victorians into work and supporting our State’s recovery.

This project is anticipated to support a further 20,000 jobs during construction and take thousands of passengers off existing rail lines and 200,000 fewer cars off our major roads.
