EastLink

Following our recent post providing a link to the 2010 Victorian Architecture Award winners, we decided to include these photos of EastLink. Designed by Wood Marsh, the project won the Joseph Reed Award for Urban Design. All images are courtesy of ConnectEast & Heaven Pictures.

Eastlink runs for 39 kilometres between Donvale in Melbourne’s north east, through Dandenong, to Frankston in the south-east of Melbourne. A series of artworks have been installed along the motorway including works by James Angus, Emily Floyd, Callum Morton and Simeon Nelson.
