Before construction for permanent above-ground buildings or structures for the first stage of the Eastern Freeway Upgrades from Burke Road to Tram Road gets underway, an Urban Design and Landscape Plan (UDLP) was exhibited for public comment from 9 to 29 October 2023 so local people could give feedback on local elements of the design for their area.

We’re now working through submissions received before finalising the UDLP and submitting it to the Minister for Planning for approval later this year.

We’ll be reporting back how what we heard in submissions has been considered in the final UDLP after it has been approved by the Minister for Planning.

You can see the UDLP exhibited for public comment on Engage Victoria.
