Construction on the Mernda line

Before High Capacity Signalling is rolled out on the Cranbourne, Pakenham and Sunbury lines and in the Metro Tunnel, it’s technology will be put through months of on-site testing and validation.

That testing site is on a 4.5km length of track on the Mernda line between Epping and South Morang stations. Specially equipped trains are scheduled to be on track for testing in the second half of 2020.
