Mernda Station was built as part of the extension of the South Morang line to Mernda, which opened in August 2018.
This premium station will integrate with the future Mernda Town Centre, providing easy access to shopping, entertainment, cafes, restaurants, a library, health and fitness facilities, bus services and the station’s two car parks.
Mernda Station is a fully integrated transport hub, servicing the 5000 passengers boarding trains each day.
The station forecourt and main entry is on the south side of Bridge Inn Road, beneath the station platform, providing direct access from a walking and cycling path, bus interchange, kiss-and-ride and taxi drop-off and car parks.
A second entry, on the north side of Bridge Inn Road, offers stairs and a lift so passengers don’t have to cross Bridge Inn Road.
Access to the platforms is via stairs and three glass-walled lifts, equipped with their own back-up power source.
The station precinct design allows for easy access to the station by car, bike, bus, taxi and on foot.
As a premium station, Mernda is staffed from first train to last.
The station buildings and landscape include walls featuring rock sourced from the project site, along with naturally weathering steel.
