Australia Federal Government willing to develop Melbourne Tullamarine Airport rail link

28 June, 2017

Australia's Federal Government announced it is willing to fund the Melbourne Tullamarine Airport rail link to the CBD if the Victoria State Government is unwilling to do so (AAP/3aw, 28-Jun-2017). Acting Public Transport Minister Luke Donnellan said the state wants to conduct a joint state-federal study on the project before it commits any funds. The rail link is expected to be delivered in 15-30 years and projected to require around AUD5 billion (USD3.7 billion).
