The new station at Cheltenham will be the southern gateway to the Suburban Rail Loop (SRL) network, providing faster and more convenient public transport to key destinations across Melbourne’s suburbs.
It will improve access to nearby employment areas and connect more people to one of Melbourne’s major retail and entertainment hubs, Southland Shopping Centre. By connecting to the existing Southland Station, it will also provide a convenient connection for Frankston line passengers to Monash, Deakin and La Trobe universities.
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 and a journey between Cheltenham and Clayton will take less than 10 minutes.
