We’re improving road safety and traffic flow in Bacchus Marsh with two major upgrades
Suburban Rail Loop is a new underground rail link connecting Melbourne’s middle suburbs. It will include new stations and connect major railway lines from the Frankston line to the Werribee line via Melbourne Airport.
Suburban Rail Loop will connect Melbourne’s middle suburbs to priority growth precincts, and link all Victorians to major health, education and employment centres.
A Strategic Assessment supporting the development of a Suburban Rail Loop was released in 2018.
Three potential corridors were considered for the project, reflecting the places of state significance set out in Plan Melbourne.
The Strategic Assessment identified potential next steps, which would require further funding:
- Development of a full business case
- Detailed technical and planning work to develop the project scope and assess the economic, social and environmental impacts of the project
- Market engagement with industry to inform the business case development; and
- An extensive stakeholder consultation process.
Registration of interest
Rail Projects Victoria is seeking registrations of interest to develop an understanding of organisations with the requisite experience and capability to assist in the delivery of the Suburban Rail Loop.
These organisations may include:
- designers, engineers, constructors, rail systems providers, rolling stock providers or other rail infrastructure providers
- sponsors, investors or financiers
- major property developers
- rail operators.
The community can have their say on the Suburban Rail Loop, including their thoughts about the project and the benefits they think it will have for Victorians.
The feedback will enable the project team to provide information that’s most relevant and will help ensure that the Suburban Rail Loop’s planning and design meets the needs of the community.
