About the Project

John Holland was awarded the Mernda Rail Extension Project contract by the Level Crossing Removal Authority (LXRA) in November 2016. The $600m Project will help deliver much need rail infrastructure to the communities in South Morang, Mernda and Doreen. The project will feature

  • a new premium station at Mernda, integrated with the proposed Mernda Town Centre
  • a further two new stations, the first adjacent to Marymede Catholic College and the other next to Hawkstowe Parade
  • up to 2,000 car parking spaces, as well as bicycle storage and bus facilities around all stations
  • three rail bridges and two road underpasses, meaning no level crossings
  • a train stabling yard at the end of the line
  • a new walking and cycling path linking into the existing path network, stations, schools and Plenty Gorge Park
