SRL West from Melbourne Airport to Werribee will build on the major road and rail projects already being delivered in the west, to deliver faster and more convenient travel, and improve access to jobs and services in the middle suburbs.
SRL West will better connect people to key educational, health and employment opportunities in Melbourne’s west, including the thriving Sunshine precinct, Victoria University, Sunshine Hospital and the Joan Kirner Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
A significant infrastructure program of work is underway in Melbourne’s west. Together with SRL West, the Metro Tunnel, Melbourne Airport Rail, Geelong Fast Rail and Sunbury Line Upgrade will transform train travel, making getting to work, school and health services quicker and easier.
These projects will reduce congestion, cut travel times and provide more trains more often on every train line in the western suburbs. SRL West will tap into and enhance the transport superhub at Sunshine, which is now underway as part of Melbourne Airport Rail.
While SRL East (Cheltenham to Box Hill) is the immediate focus for delivery, early planning and development on SRL North and SRL West continues. Transport infrastructure projects are being co-ordinated to ensure SRL to Werribee can be delivered as quickly as possible.
