2022 NELP Summer Internship Program

About NELP 

The North East Link Project (NELP) will connect the missing link in Melbourne's freeway network by linking the Eastern Freeway and the M80 Ring Road in Melbourne’s north-east. The project includes major upgrades to the Eastern Freeway from Springvale Road including Melbourne’s first dedicated busway from Doncaster towards the city. The North East Link will be a safe and efficient freeway connection for up to 135,000 vehicles a day, slashing travel times, getting trucks off local roads, linking key growth areas in the north and south-east and creating thousands of jobs during construction and early operation.
