Eventually 51,000 people will live in Mernda / Doreen. These areas, in conjunction with South Morang, are the fastest growing residential areas in the country. However, there is no reliable public transport. Train services to Mernda appear in long term planning documents, but there is no funding or time frame for delivery. We urgently need an extension of the South Morang train line to Mernda/Doreen otherwise already congestion roads will get worse.
Detailed information on this project including economic and community benefits is available on the City of Whittlesea website
