The North East Link Authority has been appointed by the Victorian Government to deliver the North East Link, Victoria's biggest transport infrastructure project.
The North East Link will run from the M80 through Banyule, join the Eastern Freeway at Bulleen and meet the East Link at Ringwood.
It will bring dramatic changes to Banyule.
Although we remain strongly opposed to the selected corridor and maintain our preference for corridor option C – a direct orbital link that would complete the ring road – we are working with the North East Link Authority (NELA) and other state government agencies to get the best possible outcome for Banyule.

Council has long recognised the need for the Metropolitan Ring Road to be completed so it can provide a direct link from the Greensborough Bypass to Ringwood and ease increasing congestion on Banyule roads. Currently, freight and commuter traffic are using Rosanna Road and Greensborough Highway as a link between northern, western and south eastern suburbs.
Completing the Ring Road is a key priority in Council’s transport strategy, the Banyule Integrated Transport Plan.
