North East Link is Victoria’s largest ever road project and an exciting opportunity to positively shape a significant area of Melbourne. Urban design will play a key role.

The Urban Design Strategy for the North East Link Project outlines the vision and quality expectations for all elements of the project – including how the final detailed design should look and feel and improve local areas.

The strategy for North East Link recognises that the final project design must keep Melbourne as one of the most diverse and liveable cities in the world. It sets high standards for the next stage of the design process to ensure North East Link is part of a legacy for a better, smarter, more efficient Melbourne and Victoria.

The Urban Design Strategy for the North East Link Project received approval from the Minister for Planning on 23 March 2020. See the Approval letter from the Minister for Planning (PDF, 52.2 KB).
