Our team of specialists worked with government, industry and community groups to understand how different potential corridors for North East Link would perform and to recommend the best possible corridor.
In working towards the best corridor, we examined four possible routes to get a better understanding of what was possible.
Our work showed that each corridor had both pros and cons. It also showed that all options would include tunnels as well as new surface roads and bridges to connect to the existing road network.
You can learn more about each of the corridor options we assessed here...
North East Link: Corridor Options
How we assessed the corridors
We assessed how well each corridor performs across a range of measures. Here are a few areas the community has told us are important.
Areas of interest
- Reducing congestion in the north-east
- Getting trucks off residential roads in the north-east
- Connecting more people to jobs and education
- Connecting businesses
- Making freight move more efficiently
- Improving public transport connections and travel times
- Improving connections for pedestrians and cyclists
- Ability to protect the environment, culture, heritage and open spaces
- Ability to minimise impacts from construction-related traffic
We've heard from you on how to get this project right
During August and September 2017, we held a number of community drop-in information sessions across the project area. We also invited everyone to join the conversation on an online engagement hub. Community feedback was collected until Monday 18 September 2017.
