The stakeholder engagement process for this transformational project is underway. The consultation will focus on the first stage of the Suburban Rail Loop – the South East Section.

As detailed planning gathers pace, input will be sought from communities, local government, peak bodies, as well as key health, education, and industry stakeholders along the proposed corridor.

Initial site investigations for the Suburban Rail Loop are expected to start in the second half of 2019. A broad alignment and general precincts for the Suburban Rail Loop have been identified, but specific station locations are yet to be finalised.

Rail Projects Victoria (RPV) is leading the design development, station location assessments and operational requirements.

RPV has also engaged the expert assistance of the Aurecon Jacobs Mott MacDonald Joint Venture (AJM) as technical adviser and KPMG as commercial adviser for the Suburban Rail Loop.
