A new Suburban Rail Loop underground train station at Glen Waverley is proposed to be located west of Springvale Road, connecting more people to retail, restaurants and entertainment and providing a key transport link to the Glen Waverley line.
The new Suburban Rail Loop station at Glen Waverley will make it easier to access retail, restaurants and entertainment facilities including The Glen Shopping Centre. It will connect more people to Glen Waverley’s thriving activity centre, including local schools, community facilities and government services.
The Suburban Rail Loop station at Glen Waverley is proposed to be built underground near the existing railway station west of Springvale Road. Construction would be staged to reduce impacts on nearby residents, businesses, roads and access to the surrounding area. Works would also involve tunnelling activities to link the new Suburban Rail Loop station at Glen Waverley 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 Glen Waverley 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).
