Melbourne Airport Rail

Melbourne Airport connects people from across Australia and the world to Victoria and, as a key conduit for economic activity, efficient transport connections to the airport precinct are critical. This proposal aims to improve transport connections by providing a reliable public transport option for Victorians and visitors to the State and an alternative to road-based transport.

The proposed route for Melbourne Airport Rail services will stop at Sunshine Station which will become a key transport interchange for metropolitan and regional passengers between Melbourne Airport Rail and other modes of transportation.

The proposal aims to:

  • deliver a faster and more reliable journey to Melbourne Airport via public transport in peak periods
  • significantly increase public transport patronage
  • reduce vehicle volumes on the Tullamarine Freeway
  • provide congestion relief and improved travel speeds across the road network

This proposal has not been progressed on the Infrastructure Priority List at this time.
