The proposed North East Link project will connect the Metropolitan ring road (M80) and Eastern Freeway (M3) completing a ring road around Melbourne which includes the Monash Freeway (M1).
As part of the project there will be upgrades to the M3 and M80, which will be delivered through Secondary Packages.
While the composition of the packages is still to be determined, Secondary Package 1 is expected to comprise connection and interchange works between the tunnel (Primary Package) and the M80 along with upgrades to approximately two kilometres of the M80 between Plenty Road and Greensborough Bypass.
