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:

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.
