Suburban Rail Loop Authority

Suburban Rail Loop Authority (SRLA), an Administrative Office of the Department of Transport (DoT) is the delivery authority responsible for overseeing the planning and delivery of Suburban Rail Loop (SRL) on behalf of the State of Victoria.


SRLA is responsible for overseeing the development and delivery of SRL.

SRL will transform Victoria’s public transport system, connecting our suburbs and making travel easier and more convenient. It includes a new 90-kilometre orbital rail line, that will connect every major train line from the Frankston line to the Werribee line via Melbourne Airport, improving access to housing, jobs, schools, universities and hospitals in Melbourne’s middle suburbs.

As well as delivering significant transport benefits, SRL provides an opportunity to plan the services, amenity and infrastructure we’re going to need outside of the CBD for future generations.

SRL will be delivered in stages over several decades, with Stage One connecting our growing health, education, retail and employment precincts in Melbourne’s south east between Cheltenham and Box Hill.

The Victorian Government has provided $2.2 billion in funding for Initial and Early Works to commence construction on Stage One by 2022.
