Design update - September 2018

Introduction

Planning approvals for North East Link will be informed by an Environment Effects Statement (EES) - Victoria's most stringent and transparent impact assessment process. Preparing the EES involves:

  • Developing and refining a proposed project design
  • Surveying existing conditions and then assessing the potential effects of the project on these conditions
  • Developing a set of Environmental Performance Requirements (EPRs) to avoid, minimise or manage impacts. These define the minimum environmental outcomes that must be achieved for design, construction and operation of the project.

It will take around one year for us to complete the EES before it goes on display for public comment early next year, and we'll be talking to communities each step of the way.

In April this year we released a project update and asked communities to:

  • Give us feedback on early project design work, particularly functional elements like whether the design improves how you get around by car, public transport, bike or on foot
  • Let us know if there are areas of concern or interest you would like considered in the project design or our studies for the EES.

We used this feedback to:

  • Keep refining the project design
  • Inform our studies for the EES

We’ve now released a second project update to provide:

  • More detailed information about the project design, including how community feedback has helped shape changes
  • An update on how key areas of community interest and concern are being considered in our EES studies.

The project design and our EES studies aren’t finished yet. There’s still more work to go.

We’re now asking communities for feedback on the latest design work and our EES studies so far.

How to get involved

1. See the latest project design

2. Read the EES studies fact sheets

These focus on key areas communities have told us they are interested in.

3. Ask questions

If you need more information you can
