Our proposal to deliver a world-class Melbourne Airport Rail Link

Melbourne Airport has partnered with Southern Cross Station and super fund manager IFM Investors to accelerate the delivery of a world-class, fast, reliable and competitive Airport Rail Link Victorians can be proud of.

The AirRail Melbourne proposal builds on the Victoria Government’s route via Sunshine, to deliver not only Melbourne’s long-awaited airport rail link, but a revitalisation of Sunshine and capacity for faster and more frequent trains to our growing regions and Melbourne’s booming west.

Our proposal includes:

  • 20-minute journey from the city to the Airport
  • Airport trains every 10 minutes, 24/7 for a turn-up-and-go service in peak periods
  • 27km of new, dedicated track
  • A new rail tunnel between the city and Sunshine
  • Airport access with only one interchange for Melbourne’s south-east
  • A new Airport station integrated with the terminals
  • Transformation of Southern Cross and Sunshine stations as transport super hubs
  • Airport connections through Sunshine for Geelong, Ballarat, Bendigo and the west
  • New, custom-built trains for Airport travellers
  • Seamless connections from the city to the Airport and with train lines across Victoria

What’s next?

Our proposal needs to go through a detailed assessment by the Victorian Government to consider whether it’s the right approach.

We know Victorians are as excited as we are about an Airport Rail Link and we’re committed to taking the journey together.
