The North East Link Tunnels will take 15,000 trucks off local roads every day and slash travel times by up to 35 minutes.

A longer 6.5km tunnel to Watsonia and simpler interchanges create more space for a tree-lined Greensborough Road boulevard and new, revived and reconnected parklands in Yallambie and Bulleen.

An additional 1.9km of overall tunnel length will now be built using Tunnel Boring Machines (TBMs) replacing cut-and-cover and trenches, which reduces disruption and creates more room for parklands and wetlands. View the map in full screen.
