VTA joy at North East Link pledge
The Victorian Transport Association ( VTA) has gained a public promise from premier Daniel Andrews that one of its most sought-after projects, the North East Link, will be built.
While the state Coalition says it will await the details before backing it, Andrews is definite.
“The announcement is terrific news for VTA members, who will benefit from the increased productivity and efficiencies”
“This is it – the missing link that will connect our city – and we will get it done,” he says.
“When we build the missing link that completes the ring road, you’ll be able to drive from Ringwood to Tullamarine without stopping at a single traffic light.”
The VTA is a long-term advocate and lobbyist for the North East Link as a priority road infrastructure project .
VTA CEO Peter Anderson commended the move that would “connect the M80 Ring Road with Eastlink and important freight hubs in Melbourne’s south east”.
“The announcement is terrific news for VTA members, who will benefit from the increased productivity and efficiencies the connection will create.”
