23.04.2017The time for action is now

Our Melbourne 4.0 Taskforce identified a high quality, mass transit link to Melbourne Airport as a key contribution to helping solve wider network congestion.

On the 17 November 2017, the Sunday Herald Sun reported on our Airport Link submission, quoting our CEO Martine Letts who said Melbourne cannot afford to wait another 10 to 15 years for a connection to and from the airport.

Echoing Martine’s comments that the time for action is now, Melbourne Airport Chief of Parking and Ground Access Lorie Argus – a panellist during our Airport Link forum which established the five guiding principles for an Airport Link business case in our submission – pointed out that roads such as the Tullamarine Freeway only delay the inevitable congestion.

Airport Link: from concept to commencement forum in October 2017

Committee for Melbourne will continue our advocacy efforts as failure to adequately address the issue now will continue to cost the city. You can read our Airport link: from concept to commencement submission.
