Registration of Interest (ROI) has been opened for businesses, investors and builders to deliver the Melbourne Airport Rail Link - a multi-billion dollar project that will connect the CBD to the airport via Sunshine.
“The search is on to find the best providers to develop a world-class airport rail link - that won’t only connect the CBD and the airport but deliver massive benefits to regional Victoria,” Public Transport Minister Jacinta Allan said.

In July of this year, the Victorian Government announced that it will be investing $5 billion towards the delivery of this project.
A full business case for the massive project is now underway, to be delivered in partnership with the Australian Government.
The recently opened ROI process will help the State Government determine which organisations have the right capability and experience to help deliver the new airport rail link. The ROI will also help gauge the interest from potential private sector investors and operators.
Global ROI is going to be led by Rail Projects Victoria, with the search including for designers, engineers, rail system providers, rolling stock providers, investors, financiers, developers as well as other rail infrastructure providers for the multi-billion dollar project.
The new Melbourne Airport Rail Link is also set to become part of the north-western section of the Suburban Rail loop - an underground rail network that will form a circle around Melbourne’s suburban area.
Interested parties are encouraged to submit their interests through Rail Projects Victoria here.
