Video of the Week: An update on Australia's Mernda rail extension project.

Posted by Emily O'Dowd on Jun 16, 2017

Mernda line frame.jpgAt the beginning of 2019, Australia's Melbourne region will be able to use the Mernda railway which will have developed eight additional kilometres of dual rail line. In addition, there will be three new stations on the route passing through Marymede, Hakstowe and Mernda. More than 86 percent of the line will be built at ground level with the rest on an elevated structure. Construction first began in April this year and Victoria's state government will be covering the total cost of the $453 million development. It is predicted that the new line will reduce journey times and provide direct service between South Morang, Doreen and Mernda stations.
