Suburban Rail Loop Set to Transform the Ivanhoe Electorate

August 28, 2018

A re-elected Andrews Government will embark upon the biggest transformation of public transport in Australia’s history, with a new underground rail network set to circle Melbourne’s suburbs and connect every major train line from the Frankston line to the Werribee line through Melbourne Airport.

The Suburban Rail Loop will deliver major benefits for people living and working in the Ivanhoe electorate by reducing congestion across the transport network, taking passengers off existing rail lines, taking 200,000 cars off our major roads and creating 20,000 jobs during construction.

A shout‑out to veteran volunteers and veterans themselves, including Jeff Freeman; our RSL presidents at Greensborough and Ivanhoe, Lee Webb and John Beezley; and to the Minister for Veterans for attending an event at the repatriation hospital on Wednesday to announce further support for veterans. Lest we forget.
