North East Link is the biggest ever investment in Melbourne’s north east – changing the way people move around Melbourne.

As part of Victoria’s Big Build, we’re delivering 3 major road projects. The 6.5km North East Link tunnels from Watsonia to Bulleen will fix the missing link in our city’s freeway network, take 15,000 trucks off local roads a day and reduce travel times by up to 35 minutes. Upgrades to the Eastern Freeway and M80 Ring Road will include new lanes, smart technology and a seamless connection to the North East Link tunnels.

This massive program of works is being carefully planned so the projects can open in 2028 – bringing all the pieces of North East Link together.
