The Mernda Rail Extension has commenced construction! Three new stations and up to 3,000 jobs will be created.

Mernda Train Station

As part of the 2016/2017 state government budget, funding for the South Morang track to be extended 8km, with a station near Marymede Catholic College, and at Mernda was acquired.

Construction on the rail line extension commenced the last week of April, with the first train passengers expected to travel in early 2019.

Travel time to Melbourne CBD is estimated to be approximately one hour.

Facilities at Mernda Train Station will include parking, safe walking and cycling paths and bike storage. The proposed station will connect with buses, creating new public transport links. The station will be integrated into the proposed Mernda Town Centre, making the station a hub of services and connections.

The train station was designed after consultations with the community in 2015 and 2016.

Mernda Station will be just over a kilometre from Mernda Villages Sales Office*.
