Melbourne is finally getting a train line from the airport to the CBD

Full steam ahead. 

The Andrews government has confirmed construction will begin on a train line connecting Southern Cross Station to Tullamarine within a decade. 

"It can't just be an expensive funnel for tourists and businesspeople between the CBD and airport," said Premier Andrews as reported by The Age, negating rumours that the link will be a direct route from the CBD to the Airport. 

Rather, the train line will be further integrated into the existing network to aide all Victorians and passengers. 

"Instead, it can transform the way people live, work and travel across Victoria," said Andrews. "In our view, the airport rail link has the potential to unlock western and northern Victoria."
