Early works program

We’re starting to build the missing link in Melbourne’s freeway network.

This year, builders will be moving power, water, gas, sewer and telecommunications lines so major construction can start from 2021.

Around 100 above and below ground services will be moved out of the way of North East Link.

What we'll be doing

The early works program will be delivered by CPB Contractors. They’ll be working hard to minimise disruptions and speaking with the local community, businesses and residents about works in their area each step of the way.

Northern early works

Early works will take place across the north-east of the project area starting from the M80 Ring Road and Greensborough Bypass through to Greensborough Road and Lower Plenty Road intersection.

Southern early works

Early works will take place across the south of the project area starting from Bulleen Road and along the Eastern Freeway from Chandler Highway to Middleborough Road.

Bulleen Park & Ride

Bulleen Park & Ride is being built as a vital part of the dedicated busway along the Eastern Freeway that will make it easier for people to get to and from the city.

CPB Contractors have been appointed to build the new park and ride and construction is starting soon.

Service investigations and works to prepare the site for construction are underway, with major works to build the facility beginning mid-year.
