Melbournian monorail could connect to Tullamarine Airport

first_imgSydney’s monorail was pulled down in June 2013 because it was long seen as an eyesore, under-utilised and a waste of money.  The plan is to build an AUD $1 billion monorail above the Tullamarine Freeway and connect to the airport to either Southern Cross or Flinders Street station, the Sydney Morning Herald reported. Premier of Victoria, Denis Napthine said that he received a proposal and would discuss it with the Plenary Group, the backers of the project but that a metro tunnel had to be built before any link to the airport could be considered.  The future of public transport between Melbourne Airport and the city of Melbourne could be a monorail if an entrepreneur’s plan goes ahead. Peter O’Brien, the mastermind behind the project, says it would be a cleaner and more high tech substitute for a normal diesel train. The monorail would be similar to one built in Incheon, South Korea because it would be silent and driverless. Source = ETB News: T.N.last_img read more
