                  PREMIER ANNOUNCES THE CONSTRUCTION OF MERNDA RAIL

On Sunday 28th February, the Premier Daniel Andrews announces that the Government will commence the Mernda Rail Extension in 2017, and it will be finished by early 2019.

We have had some community consultation forums recently and some pictures are below of the first meeting held at the Bridge Inn Hotel Mernda on Saturday 27/02/2016

 

At the forum lots of maps were displayed and some are shown here. 

Map top left shows from Sth Morang station to Gordons road where the plan is to go under the road with all other sections at ground level.  Map top right shows Hawkstowe station location but showing rail could be under or over the road.  Map bottom left shows after Hawkstowe station that the rail goes above the waterways and then rail at ground level.  Last map shows ground level rail up to Mernda station and can be either under or over Bridge Inn Road.
