Suburban Rail Loop (SRL)

The Victorian Government made some announcements about the Suburban Rail Loop recently, including the location of stations in Box Hill and Burwood. This project will have a huge impact on our municipality. We’re receiving briefings from the SRL and will ensure that the interests of our community are well represented. Our community is also encouraged to have input into the project. There is a survey for each station, so if you live, work, shop, study or pass through any of the stations, you can do the survey for that area. Many Whitehorse people use both Box Hill and Burwood areas, so we encourage you to tell the Victorian Government what’s important to you.
