Connecting Melbourne Airport to all metropolitan and regional rail lines via Sunshine
North East Link will finally connect the missing link in Melbourne's freeway network between an upgraded Eastern Freeway from Springvale Road to the M80 Ring Road.
It will be a safe and efficient freeway connection for 100,000 vehicles a day, slashing travel times, getting trucks off local roads and linking key growth areas in the north and south-east.
North East Link will overhaul the Eastern Freeway with new lanes and new technology for up to 40% faster trips.
As part of these upgrades, North East Link will create the Doncaster Busway, with dedicated express bus lanes along the Eastern Freeway from Doncaster towards the city.
In 2019, North East Link will be assessed through an Environment Effects Statement, Victoria’s most stringent and transparent planning approvals process.
