Detailed Design

North East Link is Victoria’s largest ever road project and we’re taking the time now, at the very front end, to get the best possible design for Victoria and the local community.

Some of the biggest and best builders in Australia and from around the world have been invited to prepare design concepts for North East Link.

They must meet all the requirements set by the Environment Effects Statement (EES) process and planning approvals. They’re also looking at ways to refine and improve the reference design.

This year the project will assess two detailed bids and select a preferred bidder in the middle of the year.

We’ll then work closely with them to finalise their design for North East Link and share details with the community before the end of the year.

After the design is released, there will be opportunities for people to comment.
