Victoria is one step closer to getting the North East Link built, Victorian Transport Association (VTA) CEO Peter Anderson says.

The North East Link Authority’s (NELA’s) North East Link Technical Summary has published four 'most practical' potential options for the project.

A long-time supporter of the project, VTA says the "much needed" project will bring about productivity benefits and improve road safety.

"This much-needed infrastructure project will ease congestion, improve safety and community amenity, boost economic productivity and will provide a safer, cleaner environment for those living in the North East of Melbourne," Anderson says.

"The VTA looks forward to continuing to contribute further to this vital project over the months to come."

Anderson says the ‘missing link’ will be the ultimate solution to the issue of heavy vehicles using arterial roads in the north east as it will reduce travel time for freight and improve amenity for local communities.

The North East Link will connect the Metropolitan Ring Road at Greensborough to the Eastern Freeway and EastLink.

The state government is due to finalise the preferred corridor option by the end of the year.
