The new underground station at Glen Waverley will be one of the most well-connected on the metropolitan network – connecting more people to the heart of the vibrant shopping and hospitality district.
It will provide a key transport link to the Glen Waverley Line, providing faster and more convenient access for locals and students to universities, employment and hospitals to the north and south of Glen Waverley.
Suburban Rail Loop (SRL) East between Cheltenham and Box Hill will be complete by 2035, helping transform our public transport system and delivering enormous social and economic benefits to the local community. A journey between Glen Waverley and Cheltenham will take around 15 minutes, meaning locals will save up to 2 hours on a return public transport journey from Glen Waverley to Southland Shopping Centre.
Construction works for the SRL station at Glen Waverley will be carefully staged to ensure safety and minimise disruption to the community.
Beyond the rail line, SRL includes strategic land planning and development initiatives in SRL Precincts that will attract and support clusters of new businesses and deliver better local services and additional housing.
SRL will open up exciting prospects for new recreation spaces and community facilities, as well as improved walking and cycling links that will make Glen Waverley an even more attractive and vibrant place to live, work and visit.
SRL will support Glen Waverley’s population growth, which is anticipated to grow to around 46,500 people by 2056. Employment in the Glen Waverley precinct will boom with SRL East and SRL North delivered, with jobs set to more than double to around 25,000.
