Yarra River Corridor Concept Plan

In addition, Council endorsed the Yarra River Corridor Concept Plan in February 2019. The plan presents a vision for the open space and recreational facilities along the North East Link Corridor. This plan has been presented to North East Link and various State Government Departments.  

North East Link Issues and Opportunities paper

In 2018 Council endorsed the Icon for application/pdf North East Link Issues and Opportunities paper (5.75 MB). The Council report was submitted to NELP to consider as part of the projects planning and design phase. The report provides 19 recommendations which focus on achieving a net benefit to our community.  

The identified opportunities relate to transport improvements including:

  • road infrastructure,
  • public transport (including BRT),
  • walking and
  • cycling.

It also identifies opportunities to support:

  • recreation,
  • open space,
  • public art and community facilities, and
  • considers amenity issues such as noise, water, air and
  • environmental impacts.

Key to this, is to enhance key areas along the NEL alignment including:

  • the Koonung Creek Linear Park / Eastern Freeway corridor,
  • Yarra River,
  • Bulleen Park,
  • Bulleen Road corridor and the
  • Bulleen industrial precinct at Manningham Road.
