We will upgrade the Ring Road with 5 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.
Ring Road interchange
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 improved access to Macorna Street bridge and will build a wide, well-lit Yando Street underpass to join the new North East Trail for more direct trips by bike and on foot.
Grimshaw Street interchange
We've combined some of the north-bound lanes for an interchange that’s easier to use and further away from homes.
Watsonia station and shops
2 green bridges at Elder Street and Watsonia Road will connect to new multi-level station parking and new community spaces.
