Thoughts on the proposed 3rd Melbourne airport?

Hi all,

What are your thoughts on the talks of the third Melbourne airport based in the south-east which will be supposedly entirely privately funded?

I wonder if it's going to end up like HRI

but hey, if it's privately funded, let them spend their money.

It's all happening in Melbourne town this week, 3rd Airport out in the sticks and 5th Terminal at Tulla. Shame we still can't get a train into the CBD from Melbourne Airport. With ghastly public transport connections at Melbourne and Avalon, I would imagine this third Airport would be just as marooned.

Has anyone figured out what to do with the second one?
Avalon is not running out of landing slots quite yet; what's the need for the third airport?

The position of this "3rd airport" ian in the south east were there are over a million people there and it is quite difficult to get them to tullamarine.

They would be better off offering to pay for building the train to Tulla and collecting the monies from that keeping it in private ownership.

It's difficult to get anyone anywhere to Tullamarine...

Maybe the 3rd airport will be located somewhere near a rail line

. Certainly a sothern airport will benefit amny resedents southg of the Yarra

A decent train connection to both Tulla & Avalon would certainly help everyone. A train that rain from the Frankston line to Tullamarine would be the icing on the cake.

With the level of development on that side of Melbourne and long travel times across the city this is a logical initiative. Makes much more sense than Avalon ever did.

Avalon was never intended to be used as a 2nd Melbourne  airport. Built in 50s as government  aircraft factory expanded and for jet aircraft training. Melbourne  now expected to be larger than Sydney  by 2050. Majority  of people live in south east suburbs. Airport in that area makes sense.

Well yeah of course Melbourne needs a third airport like a hole in the head. Try a rail link first. 75 mins to travel to the airport last Thursday leaving at 3.45 pm.

Forget Avalon. It is in the Tullamarine catchment area. The question "Do you think Melbourne needs a second airport" should have been asked.

Yes it does need need another airport but koo wee rup is way too far and will probably take just as long as going to tulla from the majority of bayside and southeast
