Getting to the city is going to be made 10 times easier now.

I think he had a blast.

And I’m a gunzel so I enjoyed it myself.

Being part of something that’s new, a bit exciting, see the line get extended, it’s really enjoyable.

[Vision:  People waving and happy - Male 1 speaking]

I guess it means better access to the city.

[Vision:  Views from train arriving at station]

It’s being able to get into work.

It means hopefully less cars on the road too, as more people use this.

[Vision:  Male 1 speaking]

It just opens up the whole area.

Well I think today’s been a fantastic event.

They’ve done a very, very good job of introducing - reintroducing rail to Mernda.
