Plans to renovate Melbourne Airport have been revealed as part of an AU$1 billion development.

Melbourne Airport is poised to see a huge amount of renovation work taking place, with more than AU$1 billion (£660 million) to be invested in the site.

Part of the plans includes the construction of a new domestic passenger terminal, which will cater for 20 million people each year.

The extension will also allow for more aircraft to be based at the airport.

Money will be invested in making improvements to the airport road network and the terminal’s car park.

Melbourne Airport chief executive officer Chris Woodruff said the project will provide a substantial boost to the region’s economy.

“While domestic aviation has been through a challenging period, this investment is a significant vote of confidence in the future of Melbourne Airport as Victoria’s gateway,” Mr Woodruff added.

Melbourne could be attracting more members of the fashion elite in the coming months, as Dita Von Teese recently spent time in the city after showcasing the latest designs from her lingerie collection at Melbourne Fashion Festival.
