A new Suburban Rail Loop underground train station at Clayton is proposed to be located north of Carinish Road, connecting to metropolitan and regional train services on the Cranbourne/Pakenham line and improving access to leading medical facilities and hospitals in the health precinct.

The new station will make it easier to access medical and health services, including Monash Medical Centre and Monash Children’s Hospital. It will connect more people to the precinct’s vibrant multicultural town centre and create a transport super hub in Melbourne’s south east . The station will also connect regional passengers from the Gippsland region to the loop.

The Suburban Rail Loop station at Clayton is proposed to be built underground north of Carinish Road near Clayton Station. Construction would be staged to reduce impacts on nearby residents, businesses, roads and transport connections. Works would also involve tunnelling activities to link the new Suburban Rail Loop station at Clayton to the rest of Stage One.

You can read more about the proposed techniques to build the stations and tunnels in the Building Suburban Rail Loop: Stage One fact sheet (PDF, 3.76 MB).

A range of investigations and assessments will consider the potential environmental effects on the Clayton precinct. Specialist studies in this area will assess ecological values, soil and ground conditions, traffic and transport impacts, as well as land use and amenity impacts associated with the station infrastructure.

These investigations and assessments will guide the development of mitigation and management measures and inform any subsequent approvals or conditions on the project. This information, along with inputs from community and stakeholders will help us shape the design and construction of the new stations.

More information on the planning and environmental assessment process is available in the Planning and environmental assessment: Stage One fact sheet (PDF, 509.72 KB).

We want your feedback to help us inform investigations and assessments in the Clayton precinct. Answer the survey to let us know what’s important to consider when designing the station in this area and the impacts that concern you the most.
