Be the first to ride the Mernda extension

Before commuter services to Mernda commence on Sunday 26 August 2018, we are throwing the doors open early for the community to come and view their three new stations and celebrate the project.

This will also be your first chance to ride the new section of rail with free shuttle trains running between South Morang and Mernda, stopping at Middle Gorge and Hawkstowe.

The sneak peek event will be a chance for the community to see and get familiar with their new stations and be among the first people to ride the Mernda extension.

There will be food, giveaways and entertainment for the whole family including fun for the kids. Staff will also be on hand to answer questions about the new stations.

When:

12 noon to 3:00pm, Sunday 19 August

Middle Gorge Station – enter from Williamsons Road, South Morang
