Mernda Rail is a brand new rail line from South Morang to Mernda in Melbourne’s growing north.

It involves building an eight kilometre rail line in Melbourne’s north, three new state-of-the-art stations (near Mernda's future town centre, Marymede Catholic College and Hawkstowe Parade),  walking and cycling paths and up to 2,000 car parking spaces around the stations.

Around 8,000 people are expected to use the new rail line once complete.

John Holland is building the rail line to Mernda with oversight from the Level Crossing Removal Authority.

Work started in 2017 and the new rail line will open in early 2019.
