Mernda rail Project status
The project is currently in the planning and development phase. Many investigations and pre planning assessments are being undertaken in preparation for the design and construction of the Mernda Rail.
Initial environmental studies, including flora and fauna, have been completed, geotechnical and site investigations are ongoing and extensive engineering design options are being assessed.
The Level Crossing Removal Authority (LXRA) will manage the development and delivery of the project. LXRA will be working closely with PTV, the City of Whittlesea, the local members of Parliament and the local community to deliver this project.
Construction of the project, pending confirmation of funding, will commence in 2017.
