Making Progress On Geelong To Melbourne Fast Rail

Rail Projects Victoria and its expert advisers are still undertaking the detailed planning and development works for Melbourne Airport Rail and faster services to Geelong.

The Government is having productive conversations with the Commonwealth Government, but no decisions are yet to be made.

The options for Melbourne Airport Rail to access the CBD are being considered as part of the standard planning and development and business case preparation.

This work is also considering the integration of Melbourne Airport Rail with electrifications to growth areas and faster services to Geelong.

The market-led proposal is current being assessment by the Department of Treasury and Finance in accordance with the Market-led Proposal Guideline.

Subject to the required statutory approvals, Melbourne Airport Rail project delivery is targeted to commence in 2022.
