Melbourne Airport Rail is Finally Happening!

The Victorian Government will provide up to $5 billion to construct the long-awaited Melbourne Airport Rail Link.

The Government’s preferred route will include a Transport Hub at Sunshine. Direct trains will then head north using existing rail reserves and sections of tunnel to protect local homes and businesses before connecting to the Airport.

This is a congestion-busting project that will connect Melbourne Airport with all metro and regional train lines.

Construction is set to get underway in 2022, but in the meantime check out this video for more information about the project.
