The North East Link Early Works is the first package of works for the project. It involves the relocation of around 100 above and underground services, such as power, gas, telecommunications, water and sewerage, so major construction of the North East Link can start from 2021.

As a requirement of Section 2 of the Environmental Management Framework (EMF) for the North East Link Program approved by the Minister for Planning, an Independent Environmental Auditor (IEA) must be engaged.

North East Link’s Independent Environmental Auditor (IEA) plays a key role in making sure the project and our contractors comply with hundreds of strict environmental requirements.

The Environmental Performance Requirements (EPRs) outline the environmental outcomes that must be achieved through the design, construction and operation of North East Link, including strict requirements to make sure construction and environmental impacts are managed well.
