North East Link is expected to generate significant benefits for businesses. They include improved accessibility, reduced travel times and enhanced transport network safety. Nevertheless, a number of business properties have been acquired for North East Link and there is potential for indirect impacts on other businesses.
Businesses affected by construction on North East Link are kept informed and regularly updated of the project status during the planning and construction stages to enable them to manage and minimise disruption to their employees. This also includes working with local councils to identify alternative location options for displaced businesses.
Consultation and engagement with businesses would continue through the Business Liaison Groups (BLG) throughout the construction of North East Link.
