The North East Link Project is delivering one of the largest ever tree planting programs for a major transport project in Victoria.

Well before major construction begins, we’re already planting new trees at Simpson Barracks in Yallambie and at Belle Vue Primary School in Balwyn North.

For every tree removed to build North East Link at least 2 will be planted, helping to grow a greener north and east.

More than 30,000 trees will be planted along and near the North East Link Project, keeping them as close as possible to where they have been removed. We’ll also be planting trees to shade and cool local areas, improve open spaces and the look and feel of local suburbs.
