Melbourne Airport Rail is a transformational public transport project connecting Melbourne Airport to Victoria’s regional and metropolitan train network.
Trains will run from Melbourne Airport through to Sunshine Station, then into the Metro Tunnel and the heart of the CBD, before continuing on to the Cranbourne and Pakenham lines.
This eagerly awaited project will connect people from the airport to where they need to go - be that work, home or Victoria’s key tourism destinations - via a rail service for the first time.
First look at Melbourne Airport Rail
The first concept images of Melbourne Airport Rail have been revealed.
A new rail bridge will be built across the Maribyrnong River to bring trains to the airport for the first time.
Between Sunshine and the Albion Junction, airport trains will gradually rise to travel on new elevated twin tracks before descending and continuing at ground level alongside the existing freight line through Sunshine and Airport West towards the airport.View the concept video and images.
From December 2020 to March 2021, we asked local communities what is important to them and what they think are opportunities for improvements as part of the Melbourne Airport Rail project.
This Summary Report details the key themes raised in feedback from the community, local businesses and stakeholders during the early planning phase. These themes will help identify important issues for the project to consider as the design continues to develop.
