The chances of construction starting this year on the proposed Melbourne airport train service are unlikely according to online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.

The bookie is offering $7.00 for building to begin and $1.07 that it won’t, although they are offering $1.75 that funding will be announced in the upcoming federal budget.

In bad news for Essendon fans, it’s more likely that the train line will begin construction at $1.50 before they win their next flag, offered at $2.50.

“We’ve heard of the road and bridges to nowhere but this is definitely the train to nowhere and the odds suggest we’ll still be waiting for a shovel to go in the sand come next year,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
