WHAT WE'RE ASKING FOR

The State and Federal Governments have each committed $5 billion to build an Airport Rail Link that will travel through Melbourne’s West.

The Victorian Government has also committed to delivering a $50 billion Suburban Rail Loop, linking Melbourne's suburbs from East to North, to West. The project includes a number of new stations earmarked for Melbourne's South and East.

Moonee Valley City Council strongly supports the Airport Rail Link. We have spoken out in favour of an Airport Rail Link in Council’s Integrated Transport Plan and Advocacy Strategy, as well as in the media.

But with the route set to travel through Airport West, we think it's a perfect opportunity to address a longstanding rail transport black hole.

That’s why we’re advocating for a train station at Airport West as part of the Airport Rail Link and Suburban Rail Loop.


WHY IT'S NEEDED

Did you know:

  • 7,564 people live in Airport West, with a further 14,514 people residing in neighbouring Keilor East
  • Close to 12,000 people work in Essendon Fields and Airport West, with that number projected to grow to over 27,000 in the coming years
  • 8.4% of Melbourne Airport staff reside in Moonee Valley
  • Just 4% of Airport West residents currently travel by train to work.

A new station at Airport West would connect our area to the rail transport network, ease congestion, help local business to thrive and make it easier for residents to get around.
