Yep. Skyrail Upfield line and improve pedestrian links (wider footpaths, plantings, signage) to Sydney Rd from the stations.

They'll bury Upfield. Air rights above are worth too much.

Dumb question but are there any examples of air rights being used outside of the CBD?

Not a huge amount, but it's slowly changing. Some work around Glen Waverley, and new proposals for Windsor and Ormond Stations. I think VicTrack is the problem. Too risk averse.

This one was just approved. I'm guessing though that construction might not start for awhile due to the politics.
