Surging population growth in Melbourne's north-western suburbs is being blamed for jeopardising plans for a rail link between the airport and the city.
Passengers on the Sunbury and Melton lines are expected to increase four-fold within the next 15 years.

The Melbourne Metro tunnel was designed to cater for an airport link by 2026.
