Suburban Rail Loop will transform Victoria’s public transport system connecting our suburbs and creating opportunities in great places and $2.2 billion has been provided to kick start the project.
The 90-kilometre Suburban Rail Loop will link every major rail line from the Frankston line to the Werribee line, via the airport, better connecting Victorians to jobs, retail, education, health services and each other.
It will ease congestion and take pressure off the existing transport network and the project will generate a long pipeline of work and construction activity, creating up to 20,000 jobs during construction.
As well as delivering significant transport benefits, Suburban Rail Loop provides an opportunity to plan the services, amenity and infrastructure we’re going to need outside of the central business district (CBD) for future generations.
Suburban Rail Loop will be delivered in stages over several decades, with an Initial and Early Works package of works commencing in 2022, (subject to approvals), paving the way for major construction.
