Melbourne Airport Rail Link
Melbourne Airport has joined with IFM Investors, Metro Trains and Southern Cross to unveil a blueprint for the development of the Melbourne Airport Rail Link.
AirRail Melbourne will be providing a proposal to the Victorian and Commonwealth Governments to build a world-class link that unlocks other rail capacity and creates thousands of new jobs.
Melbourne Airport chief executive officer Lyell Strambi commented on the plan “As Melbourne marches toward becoming Australia’s largest city our infrastructure needs to keep pace. Key to this is the development of the airport and all its elements to cope with a near doubling of passengers over the next 20 years. As we expand our runways and terminal facilities we also need world-class linkages between the airport and the city. Our vision is for a seamless passenger experience at the airport, properly integrated between the train carriage and the terminal.”
