The State Government has appointed Sir Rod Eddington to conduct an inquiry into the need for an additional east-west transport link across Melbourne. Previous suggestions which have received media attention have included a tunnel from the end of the Eastern Freeway under the cemetery and Royal Park to the Tullamarine Freeway or the Deer Park bypass.
This page is designed to assist community groups, members of the public and other stakeholders to make evidence-based submissions to the inquiry.
