New rail loop to reshape suburbs as major road shifts for traffic-free connections


A major road in Melbourne’s east will be shifted and a new linear park built to enable traffic-free public transport connections as part of the $34.5 billion Suburban Rail Loop. The new park and pedestrian plaza planned for Box Hill will push southern lanes of Whitehorse Rd, between Nelson Rd and Linsley St, to the north.
