Neil Mitchell grills Transport Minister over new suburban rail loop
Work on a groundbreaking rail loop connecting Melbourne’s spoked train system would start by about 2022, Transport Minister Jacinta Allan has told Neil Mitchell.

Ms Allan told Neil Mitchell the project would:
- Cost up to $50 billion
- Start about 2022
- Take about 30 years to complete
And she said sky rail would not be part of the design — we think.
Neil: Will there be sky rail?
Ms Allan: This is an underground rail loop.
Neil: So unequivocally no sky rail?
Ms Allan: I’d say it’d be difficult to put up sky rail in an underground rail loop. pic.twitter.com/S8YMOj5whM
