MoneyThe billion-dollar rail link to Melbourne's airport is finally being built
'NSW should have it all': Berejiklian launches re-election campaign
The premier has promised to spend billions on new hospitals, schools and a rail link while launching the Liberal campaign in Penrith.
The long-awaited Melbourne Airport Rail Link project has finally been approved by the Victorian and Federal Government.
The project, which has been touted several times over the past decades, will connect Melbourne Tullamarine Airport to the Melbourne CBD. The ambitious project will cost an estimated $8-$13 billion.
On Wednesday, Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced that he and Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews signed off on the project in order to ease congestion across the city and make travel to the airport more efficient. Currently, limited public transportation options connect to the international airport located 23 kilometres (14 miles) north-west of the Melbourne CBD.
High speed rail has been an Australian dream for decades, but will it ever be a reality?
You know there's an election coming up when politicians start talking about high speed rail. But will it ever get off the ground — and would it be worth the cost?
Morrison said the federal government has pledged $5 billion towards the project.

Construction on the project is due to commence in 2022, with plans to integrate into the existing rail network as well as the new Metro Tunnel, which is currently under construction.
Fast-rail links to get $2b boost from PM.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison is set to announce a $2 billion commitment to building fast rail links to ease congestion in the largest population centres. The federal government will commit $2 billion in the upcoming budget to fast rail links to ease congestion in major population centres across the country. The centrepiece of the spending will be a link between Melbourne and Geelong, cutting the run to 32 minutes, with construction to begin in 18 months, the Herald Sun reports.
