Vic­to­ria has come up with four op­tions for its free­way or­bital con­nec­tion

Vic­to­ria is one step closer to get­ting the North East Link built, Vic­to­rian Transport As­so­ci­a­tion ( VTA) CEO Peter An­der­son says.

The North East Link Au­thor­ity’s (NELA’s) North East Link Tech­ni­cal Sum­mary has pub­lished four ‘most prac­ti­cal’ po­ten­tial op­tions for the project (see above story).

A long-time sup­porter of the project, VTA says the “much needed” project will bring about pro­duc­tiv­ity benets and im­prove road safety.

“This much-needed in­fra­struc­ture project will ease con­ges­tion, im­prove safety and com­mu­nity amenity, boost eco­nomic pro­duc­tiv­ity and will pro­vide a safer, cleaner en­vi­ron­ment for those liv­ing in the North East of Mel­bourne,” An­der­son says.

“The VTA looks for­ward to con­tin­u­ing to con­trib­ute fur­ther to this vi­tal project over the months to come.”

The North East Link will con­nect the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Ring Road at Greens­bor­ough to the Eastern Free­way and EastLink.
