Victorian Government's Suburban Rail Loop Project - Heatherton Stabling Yards Precinct

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Background

The Victorian Government’s Suburban Rail Loop (SRL) is coming to Kingston.

The SRL is a new 90-kilometre rail line that will connect Melbourne’s metropolitan train lines from the Frankston Line in the east to the Werribee Line in the west. The first stage of the SRL program is the east segment from Cheltenham to Box Hill.

The SRL has announced its preferred location for the SRL stabling yards is at the Delta site at 91-185 Old Dandenong Road, Heatherton and land immediately adjacent to the east.

Initial and early works on Stage One from Cheltenham to Box Hill will get underway in 2022.

Council is not responsible for planning this project or its delivery.

Council strongly opposes use of the Delta site for the stabling yards.

The Government’s proposed location of the stabling yard has caused distress and we share in the concerns of our community. Our community quite rightly expected the Sandbelt Open Space - Chain of Parks Project to be fully delivered, as promised by the State Government, with 355 ha of additional open space in the Kingston Green Wedge with the Delta Site being a key feature.


What is Council’s role?

Council will be speaking up on behalf of our community to make sure we get the best outcomes possible.

We need your input to help make sure the interests of the community are protected as this project continues to evolve.


What will we do with your feedback?

Your feedback will be used to help inform Council’s formal submission to the Victorian Government’s Environmental Effects Statement process.

Our submission will oppose the use of the Delta site as the stabling yards, and will detail all the potential impacts of the decision to use this site.

Council has assembled a large team of experts to assist us to respond to the Environmental Effects Statement. We will also propose a range of measures and ideas to ensure the most favourable outcome for the community.

We have some ideas about what this could potentially look like. You can view some of our ideas in the Document Library – let us know what you think.

The consultation is open until 5pm Wednesday 29 September.
