We will upgrade the Ring Road with five new lanes, smart technology and a seamless interchange with North East Link.
From Greensborough to Watsonia, North East Link will pass under Grimshaw Street and 2 green bridges at Elder Street and Watsonia Road – keeping local roads for local trips.
A smarter lane layout has created more space for 2.3 hectares of trees and plants and 3.3 hectares of wetlands. We’ve also moved the Macorna Street bridge further away from homes and will build a wide, well-lit Yando Street underpass for more direct trips by bike and on foot.
We've combined some of the north-bound lanes for an interchange that’s easier to use and further away from homes.
Two green bridges at Elder Street and Watsonia Road will connect to new multi-level station parking and new community spaces.
