PREFERRED ROUTE PUTS WERRIBEE PASSENGERS FIRST

The Andrews Labor Government’s preferred route for the Melbourne Airport Rail Link will ensure Werribee passengers can get to the airport safer and sooner.

Premier Daniel Andrews announced that a re-elected Labor Government would provide up to $5 billion towards the construction of the long-awaited project, matching the commitment from the Federal Government.

The Labor Government has assessed four different options and has determined that a route through Sunshine is the best option which ensures all Victorians benefit.

The Sunshine option is the best for residents on the Werribee line as it will provide for a simple journey to the airport with the least number of changes.

Passengers will be able to change in the CBD and head straight to the airport in the quickest possible way.
