Suburban Rail Loop (SRL) will make it easier than ever to Ride2Work by bringing more jobs closer to home, providing world-class bike parking spaces at the stations and delivering plenty of new and upgraded bike paths.
By 2056, there will be more than 2.4 million cycling and walking trips each day and 230,000 extra daily public transport trips across Melbourne with SRL.
When SRL East opens in 2035, the six new stations between Cheltenham and Box Hill will feature almost 3500 bike parking spaces and 15km of new and upgraded walking and cycling paths in the broader station precincts – making it safe and easy for more people to ride to SRL stations.
- Box Hill locals will ride along a brand new cycling path in a new linear park being built alongside Whitehorse Road – leading straight to the SRL station.
- A spacious 3m cycle path will give Burwood locals a connection from Gardiners Creek Trail to Deakin University - with a safe crossing at Burwood Highway.
- The existing Waverley Rail Trail will be linked to Glen Waverley Station, and there’ll be two new paths along Bogong Avenue and Myrtle Street.
- New cycle paths in Clayton will link Lillian Street to the Monash Medical Centre, and the Djerring Trail will be upgraded.
- Cheltenham cyclists will have a path along the Frankston rail line and safe cycle lanes separated from the street leading to the SRL station from the west.
SRL Precincts will be home to around 550,000 jobs by 2056 with SRL East and SRL North delivered – all of them within a 20-minute walk or short ride from the train station.
SRL East will reduce private cars trips by 97,000 a day by 2045 – and encourage more sustainable transport choices with jobs, services and public transport within walking and cycling distance.
