Current and upcoming works
Our technical teams are out and about getting things ready to fast track construction once planning approvals are complete.
We're committed to minimising disruption. Thanks to all the local residents near investigation sites for your patience and understanding while we’ve been getting these important works done.
What we are doing
Getting ready to build the missing link
Builders are getting ready to start early works for North East Link in 2020.
Once planning approvals are in place for the project, power, water, gas, sewer and telecommunication services will be moved out of the way.
The works will pave the way for major construction to start from early 2021 to help deliver Melbourne’s long-awaited North East Link.
CPB Contractors have been appointed to deliver the $200 million package of works and have already started planning work.
With around 100 services expected to be moved, they’re also planning how to minimise disruptions for residents, motorists and local businesses.
Before works start, we’ll be in touch to let you know if works are planned in your area, what to expect and how any disruptions will be managed.
The early works program at this stage includes;
- moving a telecommunication tower near the M80 Ring Road interchange
- shifting two transmission towers near Watsonia Station
- moving a range of above and below ground services near the new interchange at Lower Plenty Road, and
- realigning a main sewer that runs under Bulleen Road
Finding services underground
Since late 2018, specialists have been working to confirm if the locations of power, gas, water and telecommunication services shown on dozens of different maps match what is buried underground.
So far, we’ve confirmed the exact locations of 147 services and found 29 new ones.
We'll continue to run these investigations to help us prepare for early works to kick off in early 2020.
We will begin door-knocking from Friday 18 October to advise local residents of any upcoming site investigation works in their area.
