Our goals

As part of our early work, we've defined what North East Link should achieve.

This helped us to compare how different options might perform against a range of criteria and to select the solution that will deliver the best outcomes for the north-east, Melbourne and Victoria.

Objectives tell us what any option for North East Link needs to achieve.

Our objectives include:

  • Improve connections and access for residents
  • Improve connections and access for business
  • Improve freight efficiency and industrial growth
  • Improve safety and reduce local congestion for communities

Principles guide how we will plan and design the new road.

Our principles include:

  • Minimise impacts on communities
  • Minimise impacts on environmental and cultural assets
  • Minimise impacts during construction
  • Use resources efficiently
