The preferred alignment and station precincts have been identified for the first stage of the Suburban Rail Loop: from Cheltenham to Box Hill.
The project will be delivered by the Suburban Rail Loop Authority, headed by incoming Chief Executive Nick Foa, who has extensive experience in infrastructure, planning and government administration.
Work will immediately begin with consultation with local government, universities and other key institutions and stakeholders on options for where stations will be located in the precincts.
This consultation, along with the geotechnical work already underway, will inform the development of the Business Case.
A Registration of Interest process for local and global firms has also begun to establish the best team to build the project from 2022.
