The SRL East station at Monash will connect more people to Melbourne’s largest employment and innovation hub outside the CBD – providing students, employees and visitors with a direct train connection to the area for the first time.

Along with an interchange for bus services and local road improvements, the station will improve access to world-class education, health and research facilities, delivering important transport connections to Monash University.

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 Monash to their home in Box Hill 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 Monash is now in its early stages, in consultation with the local council and community.

Draft Precinct Visions have now been developed for each of the 6 SRL East Precincts. These draft visions build on the priorities and feedback gathered over several years. The draft visions identify areas of opportunity, preliminary ideas and draft precinct plans that connect the place today to what it could look like in the future.

We want you to consider the draft vision for Monash and tell us more about how you want to live, work and play into the future.

What's your vision?

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.
