Melbourne Airport is planning to construct a third runway, to be located two kilometres to the south of the existing east-west runway.

The proposed runway will be east-west aligned, three kilometres in length and 60 metres in width, and be capable of handling all aircraft types.

It is also proposed that the existing east-west runway be extended from 2.2 kilometres to three kilometres and widened from 45 to 60 metres.

Approval is required from the Commonwealth Government through a Major Development Plan (MDP), which will include detailed planning documents and consider the runway's impact on the community.

Melbourne Airport expects to develop the MDP over 2018/19 and, subject to Government approval, begin construction on the project in 2019. The runway is planned to be operational between 2022-2024.
