About the project
Design work is underway for North East Link – the single biggest road infrastructure investment in Victoria’s history.
Finally connecting Melbourne's freeway network, North East Link will connect an upgraded Eastern Freeway to the M80 Ring Road.
North East Link will deliver three major projects in one:
- North East Link: Completing the ring road between the Eastern Freeway and the M80 Ring Road, connecting the growing northern and south-eastern suburbs
- Eastern Freeway upgrades: Overhauling the Eastern Freeway with new lanes and new technology for up to 40% faster trips
- Doncaster Busway: Launching a new Doncaster Busway with dedicated express bus lanes along the Eastern Freeway from Doncaster towards the city
Visit Project Milestones for more information about how we're delivering North East Link.
