Project timeline

Planning and development work for Melbourne Airport Rail is underway, with investigation work being undertaken to inform the design development and the business case.

Ahead of construction starting in 2022, we will be seeking the relevant statutory approvals and engaging with the construction industry on delivery of the project.

The project has a target opening date of 2029, subject to relevant Victorian and Federal planning, environmental and other government approvals. Community and stakeholder engagement will continue to be a key input to the project’s planning and design.
