A TRAIN line to Melbourne Airport would run from the proposed Metro rail tunnel via Albion East, the State Government says.
The 28km route was not necessarily the quickest - it would take an estimated 30 minutes to travel from the airport to the Metro's proposed CBD North station.
But Transport Minister Terry Mulder said it was the best option identified by a $6.5 million feasibility study.
Public Transport Victoria chief executive Ian Dobbs estimated last week the 9km metro tunnel would not be ready until at least 2022, meaning an airport link is more than a decade away.
Is this what you had in mind?
