North East Link includes
- Victoria’s longest road tunnels: three-lane twin tunnels travelling for six kilometres, protecting properties and the sensitive Banyule Flats area
- Interchanges at the M80 Ring Road, Grimshaw Street, Lower Plenty Road, Manningham Road and Bulleen Road
- Melbourne’s first dedicated busway with express lanes along the Eastern Freeway from Doncaster towards the city.
The idea for a North East Link was first considered in 1929. It is now identified as Victoria's priority road project by Infrastructure Victoria and will be the single biggest investment in road transport infrastructure in Victorian history.
