Suburban Rail Loop - Burwood Station

A new underground train station is set to be built in Burwood as part of the Victorian Government's Suburban Rail Loop project.

Proposed to be located on Burwood Highway adjacent to the Burwood campus, it will create new connectivity to campus, while improving existing public transport conditions for staff, students and nearby residents.

Initial plans for the Burwood Station are available via the Suburban Rail Loop: Stage One webpage. This indicates a general location of the station in relation to Deakin University and surrounds.

Deakin has been, and continues to be, in extensive discussions with the Suburban Rail Loop Authority to ensure the best possible outcomes for our community.

Feedback on the initial proposal has been provided, emphasising the importance of:

  • a high-quality, grade-separated pedestrian and cycling connection across the Burwood Highway
  • the need for a multi-modal (i.e. bus, tram and train) public transport integration.

We believe these inclusions are imperative to creating a safe and accessible public transport hub for the area.

About the Suburban Rail Loop

Suburban Rail Loop is a city shaping project that will transform Victoria’s public transport system. Three transport super hubs at Clayton, Broadmeadows and Sunshine will connect regional services to Suburban Rail Loop, so passengers outside Melbourne won’t have to travel through the CBD to get to employment, hospitals and universities in the suburbs.

Suburban Rail Loop will be delivered in stages over several decades, with Stage One between Cheltenham and Box Hill, including the Burwood Station, to be built first.

The Suburban Rail Loop Authority will continue to engage with the public throughout the planning process. For further information and to register for consultation opportunities and progress updates visit
