Job type: Full time / 3 years, fixed term
Organisation: Suburban Rail Loop Authority
Salary: $90,067 – $102,192
Occupation: Communications, Marketing and Media
Suburban Rail Loop (SRL) is a city and state-shaping project that will transform Victoria’s public transport system, connecting our suburbs and creating opportunities in great places. The 90-kilometre Loop will link every major rail line from the Frankston line to the Werribee line, via Melbourne Airport, better connecting Victorians to jobs, retail, education, health services and each other. Beyond the rail infrastructure and cross-suburb travel connections, over time SRL will reshape Melbourne from a city centred around a single CBD to a ‘city of centres’ – attracting more businesses and people to the broader station areas and creating more jobs in Melbourne’s middle suburbs closer to where people live. Local initiatives will include new and improved open and public space, tree planting, more walking and cycling paths, retail and hospitality areas and plazas.
