The extension of the South Morang line to Mernda involved eight kilometres of new rail line and three new stations to cater for up to 8000 commuters a day:
- Mernda Station on Bridge Inn Road in Mernda
- Hawkstowe Station on Hawkstowe Parade in South Morang
- Middle Gorge Station on Williamsons Road in South Morang.
The Mernda rail extension opened in August 2018.
Around 2000 car spaces have been built across the three stations, as have secure bicycle storage facilities. These bike storage facilities are connected by a new walking and cycling path that links the three new stations.
Three new community spaces have also been been created at Hawkstowe Station, The Parkway and Mernda Station.
The Mernda Rail Extension Project commenced in 2015 and construction began in 2017. After less than 18 months of construction we have now opened eight kilometres of new track and three new stations.20-09-2018
