Community feedback has helped shape an alternate design for North East Link around Watsonia station and shops that has better local connections for cars, buses, bikes and walkers.

Some of the key changes include:

  • a green bridge from Elder Street to both sides of Greensborough Highway and the station carpark
  • upgrades to parking at Watsonia Station and a new multi-level car park with around 60 more spaces
  • a central bus stop close to the station entry, making it quicker and easier to move between trains and buses
  • improved walking and bike paths and crossings.

This is not the final design for North East Link. The builders we ask to develop detailed designs and bids will look for further opportunities to refine and improve the design.
