Industry News

Have your say about the North East Link

The North East Link is an important piece of infrastructure missing for the Market community travelling from the south east.

Once constructed it will provide superior freight connections to Dandenong and agriculture connections to Gippsland headed for the Market.

The North East Link Authority is undertaking an online community survey to:

– understand what people value in their local neighbourhood

– gather information about how and when people travel around the North East Link study area and across the region

Survey results will help the Authority prepare the business case for the North East Link.

The survey is particularly relevant for people who live in, or travel through, the study area as shown in the map above (bordered by the Eastern Fwy and EastLink to the south, and Metropolitan Ring Rd to the north-west).

The survey will take 10 minutes to complete and can be found here.
