Melbourne Airport to ‘reach a compromise’ on the above-ground train station proposal.

A “long-awaited” train link could be operational to Melbourne Airport within six years after the airport agreed to compromise on its demand for an underground railway station. Melbourne Airport chief executive Lorie Argus stated they would collaborate with the Victorian government to construct the preferred above-ground station proposal. “The time is now to compromise and accept the above-ground solution so we can proceed and build this desperately needed rail link,” she said. The rail link will also support plans for a third runway, which is expected to accommodate around 45 million travelers passing through the airport annually. Currently, the airport welcomes approximately 100,000 passengers a day. “The rail link will support a massive increase in passenger numbers and billions of dollars in additional economic activity for Victoria,” Argus added.
