Designs have been released for Melbourne’s North East Link project to residents in the city’s north east.
The $16.5 billion North East Link aims to reduce congestion across Melbourne’s north-east, divert thousands of trucks off of local roads, and create 10,000 new jobs during construction.
Victoria’s roads, population growth and congestions taxes are set to be the big talking points at this year’s Victorian Transport Infrastructure Conference.
The Victorian Government today has confirmed the route for Melbourne’s North East Link, which it anticipates will be the biggest transport project in the state’s history.
Victorian Transport Association CEO Peter Anderson has urged the North-East Link Authority to prioritise the safe and seamless through-movement of heavy vehicles in design and planning for the road.
The Victorian Transport Association has welcomed the Victorian Government’s release of its five-year Victorian Infrastructure Plan, including the endorsement of 134 of Infrastructure Victoria’s 137 recommendations responding to the state’s infrastructure challenges.
