Project updates

The Australian Government is undertaking a 90-day review of its Infrastructure Investment Program, with jointly funded Victorian projects that are not election commitments or under major construction to be included.

Early works on Melbourne Airport Rail continue, but no new contracts will be awarded during the review period.

This website will be updated with further information when it is available.

About the project

Melbourne Airport Rail will connect 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.

Melbourne Airport Rail (SRL Airport) forms a key part of Suburban Rail Loop – the new orbital rail line between Cheltenham and Werribee.

No matter which train line you use, you'll be able to easily catch public transport to the airport.
