The North East Link Program has established 2 business liaison groups (BLGs) to represent the wide range of businesses in and around the project area. These groups provide a forum to hear about the project, exchange ideas and identify opportunities to work together.

Our BLGs seek to advance the interests and preparedness of business for the construction of North East Link. Their local perspective, particularly in relation to minimising and mitigating the impacts to businesses, are vital as we move into project construction.

Applications to join the Northern BLG are open. If you have a strong sense of business acumen and connections to local networks we want to hear from you. Submit an online application.
