Compulsory Acquisition Update – North East Link Project

The compulsory acquisition process is now well underway for the North East Link Project with Notices of Intention to Acquire and Notices of Acquisition having now been served on some properties impacted by the Project.

In addition, early construction has commenced with the Authority’s contractors beginning to move key power, water, gas and other services out of the design alignment.

In 2021, it is expected that a final builder will be appointed together with the final design being released which will enable major construction works to commence.
