Atherstone Rail Link to Tullamarine Airport via Sunshine

The Atherstone community will soon be able to get a train all the way out to Melbourne Tullamarine Airport. 

With construction set to begin in 2022, the Victorian State Government has approved the start of planning and development for the proposed “Sunshine Route”. $5 billion has been committed at a State and Federal Government level to creating this first ever rail link between Melbourne city and Tullamarine via Sunshine. 

For Atherstone residents, this means no more expensive carparking or dealing with Tullamarine Freeway traffic. As part of the project, Sunshine train station and its surrounds will also receive an upgrade making it even more convenient and easy to catch a train to meet your next flight.
