Expressions of interest open for contracts on SRL East

Expressions of interest open for contracts on $14B SRL East

Expressions of interest are now open for two contracts to deliver new stations as part of the 90-kilometre Suburban Rail Loop in Melbourne.

Successful proponents will help to deliver six new SRL stations, which will be delivered at Box Hill, Burwood, Glen Waverley, Monash, Clayton and Cheltenham.

15,000 passengers are expected to pass through Box Hill and Clayton stations every day.

Two global bidders have also been shortlisted for the Linewide Alliance contract – to build the fleet of high-tech SRL trains, fit out the tunnels and operate and maintain the SRL East network. Works on all six station sites begin later this year.

Tunnelling for the SRL East starts in 2026, with the $3.6 billion contract to build 16 kilometres of twin tunnels between Cheltenham and Glen Waverley awarded late last year to Suburban Connect, a consortium of CPB Contractors, Ghella and Acciona Construction. The Tunnels North contract will be awarded later this year.

The project is expected to bring thousands of jobs and local services to the neighbourhoods around each station. SRL East will start taking passengers from 2035.

The total estimated cost of the project is between $30-34.5 billion.
