“Avalon Airport is a vital, generational asset for our community and for the state.
“Having both a sea port and airport elevates the economic importance of Geelong as a Gateway City on a national and global scale.
“Our international airport status is a significant positive that will yield economic benefits for decades to come.
“The future for Avalon Airport is bright but we need government support to build a train station at Avalon to ensure a level playing field with Tullamarine and ensure accessible, competitive public transport links.
“We urge the Victorian Government to work with Avalon Airport to construct a station at Avalon which could be operational in time for the 2026 Commonwealth Games.”
