The Andrews Labor Government has recently unveiled the four potential corridor options for the North East Link.

The North East Link is aiming to significantly reduce congestion in Melbourne’s north east, take trucks off local roads and creating more than 5,000 new jobs.

The four possible corridors have been determined through extensive works spanning the entire north-east, including geo-technical investigations, traffic modelling, environment studies and discussions with community groups, businesses and local residents.

Each corridor has been assessed against a range of measures including key local concerns such as reducing congestion and getting trucks off residential roads, as well as the impact on urban areas and the environment.

Each of the options identified begin at the Ring Road in Greensborough and connect to either the Eastern Freeway or EastLink, and all will involve tunnels, new surface roads and bridges.

It was also announced that those who live and work in the area can provide feedback online or at community information sessions taking place across the north-east throughout August.

The State Government is expected to make a decision on the preferred corridor by the end of the year.
