Melbourne 2030 is the Victorian government's 30-year plan to manage growth and change across metropolitan Melbourne and the surrounding region. The plan aims to prevent excessive urban sprawl by containing development within urban growth boundaries. Melbourne 2030 also aims to protect 12 Green Wedge areas, including parts of Nillumbik.
The Green Wedge Areas are outside the urban growth boundary. Development in these areas aims to be lower than that within the urban growth boundaries, so that the environmental aspects of the areas are protected.
Use this link to tell the NELA not to split the Green Wedge of Nillumbik with a major freeway. Options C and D must be immediately removed from consideration.
Also, options B and C, because of the proposed location of the interchanges (on/off ramps) wouldl only add to the congestion on the Main Road of Eltham and turn its residential streets into rat runs to the interchanges. Option B is the most expensive of the options having 70% tunnelling proposed. Tunnelling has been estimated to be 6 to 8 times more expensive than a surface road. To achieve options B and C access through the Green Wedge would be required.
More detail later.

The WCA is a very active Warrandyte Community residents’ group which was incorporated in 2002. It has as its mission the defence of the character and heritage of the township, the protection of the environment and the Green Wedge and the promotion of sporting, educational, recreational and cultural activities. The WCA has done much work with local councils to raise community awareness of bushfire threat. Their recent campaign “Be Ready Warrandyte – Living With Bushfire Risk” gives valuable information and is vital to keeping the community safe.
Their tools page contains lots of useful stuff, including a link to the video made by Manningham City Council entitled "Don't Wait And See", which talks specifically about the Warrandyte area and the risks faced by local residents. This video has been highly praised by state parliamentarians, Emergency Services leaders and a number of overseas bodies. Check it out using the link below.
