3new stations

3,000new jobs


The Mernda Rail Extension has built a brand new rail line from South Morang to Mernda in Melbourne’s growing north.

Trains began running on the eight-kilometre rail line in August 2018, with three new state-of-the-art stations opened at:

  • Middle Gorge, on Williamsons Road in South Morang
  • Hawkstowe, on Hawkstowe Parade in South Morang and
  • Mernda, on Bridge Inn Road in Mernda.

There are new walking and cycling paths linking the three stations and up to 2,000 new car parking spaces across the entire project.

Around 8,000 people are expected to use the extended line each day.

The project has created around 1,200 construction jobs and more than 1,800 jobs in other industries and businesses.
