The new underground Suburban Rail Loop (SRL) station at Box Hill will be one of the busiest and most well-connected stations on the metropolitan network – making it easier and faster to access the area’s thriving retail, education and health services.
The station will provide a convenient connection to the existing Box Hill Station on the Belgrave/Lilydale line and will integrate with local tram and bus services – connecting more people to jobs, health services and study opportunities in one of Melbourne’s fastest growing education and medical precincts.
SRL East between Cheltenham and Box Hill will be complete by 2035, helping transform our public transport system and delivering enormous social and economic benefits to the local community. A trip between Cheltenham and Box Hill will take just 22 minutes, with locals saving an average of 40 minutes on a one-way trip between SRL East stations.
The station will be located in the heart of the Box Hill activity centre, to the north of the existing Box Hill Station. The underground station will have 2 levels and be fully accessible for all passengers via lifts and escalators.
Proposed station entrances include a southern entrance at Main and Market streets and a northern entrance at Whitehorse Road.
