Overview

Suburban Rail Loop (SRL) will transform Victoria's public transport system connecting our suburbs and creating opportunities in great places.


The 90-kilometre SRL 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 24,000 jobs across the economy during construction.


As well as delivering significant transport benefits, SRL provides an opportunity to plan the services, amenity and infrastructure we're going to need outside of the CBD for future generations.


SRL will be delivered in stages over several decades, with SRL East between Cheltenham and Box Hill now under construction. Initial and Early Works for SRL East started in 2022, paving the way for the main works packages to begin in 2025.
