North East Link proposed routes announced
The State Government unveiled four route options for the North East Link yesterday.
Option A: South through Heidelberg and Bulleen to the Eastern Freeway, 1 kilometres long including a four kilometre long tunnel.
Option B: Through Greensborough and Lower Plenty linking to the Ringwood Bypass, 24-kilometres long including almost 18 kilometres of tunnels.
Option C: Extends along an existing freeway reservation in Eltham North and passes through sensitive green wedge land in Eltham and Warrandyte. The 26-kilometre route would have almost half its length in a tunnel.
Option D: Also extends along an existing freeway reservation in Eltham North but then forges a new 40-kilometre loop through sensitive environmental and heritage areas in Kangaroo Ground and the Bend of Islands, before meeting EastLink in Wantirna. Almost half would be in tunnels.
The North East Link Authority would like you to have your say on the project.
A number of information sessions will be held during August. For more information click here.
