Business and Traders

The North East Link Project has established two business liaison groups (BLG’s) to represent the wide range of businesses in and around the project area. These groups provide a forum to hear about the project, exchange ideas and identify opportunities to work together.

Our business liaison groups seek to advance the interests and preparedness of business for the construction of North East Link. Their local perspective, particularly in relation to minimising and mitigating the impacts to businesses are vital as we move into Project construction.

Bulleen Industrial Zone (BIZ) Group

Representing businesses in the Bulleen Industrial Zone (BIZ), this group have been actively involved throughout the planning and approvals phase of the project and will continue during the next phase.

The BIZ group is independently chaired by Mike Marasco.

Northern Business Liaison Group (NBLG)

The NBLG is a newly formed group which will consist of members from the business community in, and around the northern section of the project area, particularly across the Watsonia district. NBLG will play an important role in navigating the impacts of early works and the removal of services on businesses in the area.

The NBLG is independently chaired by Jeni Coutts.
