John Holland has been selected by the Victorian Government as part of the preferred consortium to deliver a major works package for the iconic Melbourne Airport Rail project. The project will establish Sunshine Station as a transport superhub, connecting airport trains with the metro and regional rail networks. The Sunshine Systems Alliance will also deliver corridor-wide rail system and signalling upgrades to allow High Capacity Metro Trains to travel to the new Airport Station. John Holland and its partners CPB Contractors, AECOM, KBR, Alstom, Metro Trains Melbourne, V/Line and Rail Projects Victoria have formed the Sunshine Systems Alliance and will soon commence detailed planning and design, along with early works on site, in the Sunshine and Albion areas. When completed in 2029, Melbourne Airport Rail will provide passengers with an around 30-minute trip between the airport and Melbourne’s CBD, and support seamless connections to both the regional and metropolitan rail networks.
