Melbourne is a world class city. It deserves a rail link to the airport.
The Melbourne Airport Rail Link will benefit both visitors to our great state and locals using the airport.
In the May Budget, the Federal Government committed $30 million for the development of a business case for the Melbourne Airport Rail Link. I am keen to work with the local councils, industry and the State Government to progress this project. Yesterday my colleague Paul Fletcher and I held a meeting with stakeholders. This is the first step to getting the job done on this missing transport link.
