The Victorian government has confirmed the elevated sections will run through Sunshine North, Keilor East and Airport West, while the wider line itself will require homes to be purchased.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews confirmed in November they were committing $5 billion each to the project, which is due to be completed in 2029.
Victorian Transport Infrastructure Minister Jacinta Allan said, “There is a massive amount of engineering work to go through and there are options that look at elevated rail particularly over the parts of the network that go over parts of the Maribyrnong River.
“A project of this size and scale will go through an extensive design and consultation process.”
Shadow transport infrastructure minister David Davis has labelled the project the “slow train” because the 30-minute transfer time is slower than the current bus link’s 22 minutes.
