Melbourne sky rail gains planning permission from supreme court

melbourne cityAusBNAusBN - The AUD$1.6 billion Melbourne sky rail project has been given the green light by the federal government to continue its planning process, following a legal challenge from a residents group.

The project was announced in February 2016, as part of a plan to modernise Melbourne’s transport infrastructure. The plans also aim to remove nine dangerous and congested level crossings in the area.

The court case ruled that planning minister Richard Wynne was not required by law to undertake any consultation with residents, regarding the railways elevated design between Cranbourne and Pakenham stations.

Wynne said: “We were confident in the case because we have done everything by the book for these nine deadly level crossings to be removed.”

The project is to be delivered by a consortium including CPB Contractors and Lendlease, and will drastically improve service links between Melbourne Airport, the city centre and the suburbs.

Construction work will not disrupt current rail services and will create more than 2,000 jobs.
