Eastern Freeway Upgrades

The Eastern Freeway Upgrades will connect to the new 6.5 kilometre North East Link tunnels in Bulleen – linking Melbourne’s east with the Ring Road. Designs for the new interchange, including improvements to Koonung Creek Reserve in Balwyn North, were exhibited in May 2022 in the North East Link Tunnels UDLP. The UDLP was updated in response to community feedback and work to build the interchange will begin in early 2024. The UDLP on exhibition now shows some further refinements to the design including updates to walking and cycling paths and additional materials for noise walls.
