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.

What's happening now
Early construction on SRL East started in June 2022 and is powering ahead.
Planning for the area around the new underground station at Box Hill is now in its early stages, in consultation with the local council and community and we're asking people to share their vision for their neighbourhoods.
The neighbourhoods around the new SRL East stations will be magnets for activity and investment - attracting more people, businesses and jobs closer to home, along with new and diverse housing options.
Building on the characteristics of existing neighbourhoods, planning will set the vision for new and enhanced open and public spaces, community facilities and services like schools, parks, walking and cycling paths, plazas and retail areas.
