Melbourne airport rail link construction draws global interest

The Andrews Government have announced the results of the Registration of Interest process for the rail corridor as work ramps up to begin construction of the project by 2022.

Authorities will now assess which organisations have the capability to build the rail link and begin exploring opportunities for private sector investment.

The full business case is underway and sites along the corridor are being surveyed. “We are not wasting a minute in getting this project planned, designed and delivered. The Melbourne Airport Rail Link is the next step in our transformation of Victoria’s public transport network and a key part of the Suburban Rail Loop," Premier Daniel Andrews said.
