PROJECT OVERVIEWTThe proposed Suburban Rail Loop is a new underground rail link connecting Melbourne's middle suburbs. It will include new stations and connect major railway lines from the Frankston line to the Werribee line via Melbourne Airport.
The Suburban Rail Loop will connect Melbourne’s middle suburbs to priority growth precincts, and link all Victorians to major health, education and employment centres.
Melbourne is Australia’s fastest growing city, and a powerhouse of its economy with strong population, economic and jobs growth. In the coming years, our transport system will face continued pressure as we continue to grow.
RAIL LOOP BENEFITSIMPROVING TRAVEL AROUND MELBOURNEA Suburban Rail Loop would revolutionise the way people move around Melbourne, easing demand on existing lines and shifting more Melburnians out of their cars.
CREATING JOBS, GROWING OUR ECONOMYMore than 20,000 jobs are forecast to be created as a result of the project during construction. Victoria’s economy would receive a boost due to investment in growth precincts as well as travel time savings across Melbourne.
CONNECTING OUR GROWTH CENTRESA Suburban Rail Loop corridor would connect key precincts in Melbourne’s middle suburbs that have been identified as places for population and jobs growth, as well as centres for health, education and innovation.
CONNECTING REGIONAL VICTORIAThree new super hubs at Clayton, Broadmeadows and Sunshine would connect regional passengers into the Suburban Rail Loop, providing all Victorians with better access to economic opportunities as well as world-class education and health services.
