After the Mernda Rail Extension was announced, there were several community consultations held in multiple locations to enable as many as possible to see plans and to comment on them.

PLANNING PHOTOS

 

Map below top shows from Sth Morang station to Gordons road where the plan is to go under the road with all other sections at ground level.   

Next Map shows Hawkstowe station location but showing rail could be under or over the road.

Next Map 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.

 

The endangered Matted Flax Lily is found along 

the rail corridor from South Morang to Mernda. 

Plants have now been identified and flagged to 

prevent any damage. The plants will be moved 

to a new location, just like they were for the 

South Morang rail project. The site in this picture 

is adjacent to the Marymede College oval.

And today there are works beginning at 

Mernda Station too! Thanks to Page member 

Eranga Jayasundera for his picture

 


The works depot for the extension is now being set up near South Morang Station on McDonalds Rd. Thanks to Page member Chris Atkins for sending in the photo!

Work has begun at Marymede Station with surveyors pegs being set out at the site. The State Government promised works to begin in early 2017 and they have stayed true to their word; thanks to the Page member who sent in this photograph, keep your eyes peeled and we'll post your photos up of construction as they occur
