A world-class airport link for Victoria
AirRail Melbourne is proposing a partnership with government to deliver a world-class Melbourne Airport Rail Link, using dedicated tracks that open up new public transport connections across Victoria.
Our proposal builds on the Victorian Government’s route via Sunshine, to deliver not only Melbourne’s long-awaited airport rail link, but a revitalisation of Sunshine and capacity for faster and more frequent trains to our growing regions and Melbourne’s booming west.
AirRail Melbourne brings together expertise from some of Victoria’s biggest transport providers: Melbourne Airport, Southern Cross Station, Metro Trains Australia and fund manager IFM Investors.
With the operators of both Melbourne Airport and Southern Cross Station in the heart of Melbourne, and with experience in international airport rail, we’re uniquely placed to provide a seamless, end-to-end journey.
We’ve been looking for some time at the best way to deliver a premium Airport rail service, and we’ll be talking with the Victorian and Commonwealth Governments about what’s needed to finally get the Melbourne Airport Rail Link off the ground.
IFM Investors is a uniquely-structured global fund manager with $112 billion under management as of 31 August 2018. Established more than 20 years ago and owned by 27 major superannuation funds, IFM Investors’ interests are deeply aligned with the interests of its investors. IFM Investors is committed to the United Nations supported Principles for Responsible Investment.
Melbourne Airport is Australia’s busiest 24/7 airport. It is owned and operated by Australia Pacific Airports Corporation Limited and in the 12 months to June 2018 welcomed 36.7 million travellers.
Southern Cross Station is Victoria's primary metropolitan and regional transport gateway and interchange, serving over 1.2 million people every week at the heart of the State’s public transport network.
Metro Trains Australia is a consortium of rail and construction businesses: harnessing the strength and experience of shareholders MTR Corporation (60%), John Holland Group (20%) and UGL Rail (20%). MTA is the holding company of Metro Trains Melbourne (MTM), the operator of the metropolitan railway in the nation’s fastest growing capital city.

Our proposal needs to go through a detailed assessment by the Victorian Government. There are several stages in this assessment process but we expect more information will be available before the end of 2018.
We welcome enquiries about our proposal.
