On 14 March, 2019 we hosted a forum to address the recently confirmed Melbourne Airport Rail Link.
Comprising IFM Investors, Melbourne Airport, Southern Cross Station and Metro Trains Australia, the new AirRail Melbourne consortium has officially confirmed a partnership with the Victorian and Federal Governments to deliver the Melbourne Airport Rail Link. With their project commitment of $5 billion, which matches the $5 billion commitments made by the State and Federal governments, that builds on the preferred route of both Governments; delivering a world-class link via Sunshine.
AirRail Melbourne will warrant serious consideration by the State and Federal Governments.
They promise to deliver:
- Train services every 10 minutes, every day of the year
- Reliable travel times under 20 minutes
- Fair ticket prices
- Custom-built airport trains on dedicated tracks
