Smaller trains and services so frequent you won't need a timetable is what Premier Daniel Andrews is promising for the new Suburban Rail Loop - but the total cost is still unclear and the project will rely heavily on private investment.
The new 90-kilometre rail ring is expected to have up to 12 new stations, with twin tunnels connecting every major rail line from the Frankston line to the Werribee line through Melbourne's middle suburbs.
Mr Andrews said there had already been "thousands" of hours of technical planning over the past 12 months, including 14 bore holes dug up to test rock and soil for composition and stability.
Pre-construction work on stage one from Box Hill to Cheltenham is under way, with close to 100 bore holes to be drilled by mid-2020 and construction earmarked to begin in 2022.
