The proposed East West Link road connection aims to live up to the demands of a growing population and help improve connectivity across Melbourne.
This project may come as good news to those considering buying real estate in Carnegie, who want a more free-flowing connection around the city.
Last week (August 21), Premier of Victoria Dr Denis Napthine welcomed the support of eight leading business and industry membership organisations backing the East West Link.
This "influential" alliance consists of the Property Council of Australia, the Master Builders Association of Victoria, Infrastructure Partnerships Australia and the Australian Industry Group, among others.
Dr Napthine said he supports the alliance's view that the East West Link is "vital" to the long-term health of Victoria's economy and the millions of workers it supports.
"This alliance understands that only East West Link can ensure that our great city remains liveable – it will cut travel times, reduce congestion and improve connectivity and productivity across Melbourne and Victoria. It will bust congestion on the Eastern Freeway, at Hoddle Street and the Bolte Bridge.
"With East West Link, instead of travelling through 23 sets of traffic lights, it will take motorists around seven minutes in travel time to get through the new tunnel, bringing to an end frustrating stop-start traffic conditions."
