North East Link
On 24 November 2017, Premier Daniel Andrews announced that the Victorian Government has selected Corridor A as its preferred route for the North East Link. Corridor A will follow the Greensborough Highway south from the Western Ring Road and connect with the Eastern Freeway.
Corridor A passes through or near the suburbs of:
- Watsonia North
- Watsonia, Macleod
- Yallambie, Rosanna
The Premier has indicated there will be entry points to a tunnel at the following locations and the tunnel will run for a length of 5km.
- Bulleen Road at Banksia St
- Grimshaw Street
- Lower Plenty Road
It will be necessary for the Government to compulsorily acquire a number of properties in order to complete the North East Link. The North East Link Authority has begun to inform property owners whose homes and businesses will be acquired. Detailed maps and plans for the proposed North East Link route have not yet been publicly made available, and the exact number of properties to be acquired is not yet known.
It is never too early to seek legal advice if your property is affected by compulsory acquisition. From our considerable experience in compulsory acquisition, Slater and Gordon can explain the process to you and give you advice to protect your interests.
The right legal and valuation advice can result in you receiving substantially more compensation than that first offered by the Authority.
Now that the preferred route for the North East Link is known, it is extremely important for affected property and business owners to get legal advice. Our experience has shown that, with the right advice, the amount of compensation obtained can sometimes be considerably more than first thought. It is important to obtain expert advice on valuation and legal issues so that you are fully aware of your entitlements.
Our work is at no cost to you, as the Authority is legally required to pay our costs and we will only seek payment from the Authority, not from you.
