Overview:

A Strategic Assessment that supports the potential development of a Suburban Rail Loop has been released. The proposed Suburban Rail Loop is a rail network forming a circle around Melbourne’s suburbs. Three potential corridors were considered for the project, reflecting the places of state significance set out in Plan Melbourne.

The Strategic Assessment identified potential next steps, which would require further funding:

  1. Development of a full business case
  2. Detailed technical and planning work to develop the project scope and assess the economic, social and environmental impacts of the project
  3. Market engagement with industry to inform the business case development; and
  4. An extensive stakeholder consultation process
