What is the North East Link?

The North East Link Project (NELP) is a $15.8 billion State Government project being led by the North East Link Project (NELP) Authority. Construction is expected to commence in 2021, with the new road and tunnel expected to be open by 2027. In May 2018, the Victorian Government confirmed the selected ‘Option A’ route through Bulleen would be delivered.

The PER includes information on how the project could affect matters of national environmental significance, such as federally listed threatened species and communities, migratory species and the environment on Commonwealth land (as opposed to Council/State Land found in the EES) during construction and operation and how adverse impacts would be managed. Given the national significance of the Act, Council has prepared a submission in relation to the PER.
