The SRL East station at Box Hill will be one of the busiest and most well-connected stations on the metropolitan network – making it easier and faster to access the area’s thriving retail, education and health services.

The station will provide a convenient connection to the existing Box Hill Station on the Belgrave/Lilydale line and will have convenient links to local tram and bus services – connecting more people to jobs, healthcare and study opportunities in one of Melbourne’s fastest growing education and medical precincts.

Frequent services every few minutes will mean passengers can turn up and go when the new rail line is operating by 2035. It’ll take just 3-4 minutes between stations – a journey for a student travelling from Box Hill to Monash University will take just 12 minutes.
