The next stage of Suburban Rail Loop is underway with geotechnical work beginning at Box Hill.

It's the start of a program of works across Melbourne’s southeast, to help understand ground conditions and plan for the new underground alignment and station locations.

The geotechnical investigations involve drilling boreholes of depths between 30 to 60 metres, to extract rock and soil, which is then tested for composition and stability.

These findings will be is a vital part of development and technical work that will determine the stages and timing of the project, and how it will be built.
