The Moorabool News

AusNet say that “No route has been decided” however it’s clear that they have a preferred route in mind.  The shortest and most direct route would be the cheapest, and coincidently, AusNet have sent letters to a number of property owners advising them that their properties are in scope for towers to be erected upon them – and even more coincidently, their properties happen to lie in almost a straight line along the shortest and most direct route!

Moorabool News asked AusNet, “if the route is not known, why would they be awarded the contract on a FIXED PRICE tender of approximately $370 Million dollars?

It would be very unusual for anyone to submit a response to a tender seeking a fixed price, without having an extremely good idea of what costs they will incur in the proposal, yet it’s possible that this may have happened here.

Get Involved

The only way to make a difference is to get involved. It’s easy to sit back and wait for others to do something but when you are staring at 75-85m towers in a few years time, you will kicking yourself for not doing something when you had the chance.  This is OUR only chance to stop these towers, so get involved now.

Welcome to the home of Darley Power Fight. A group of residents in Darley, Coimadai and Merrimu, united against high voltage transmission towers passing through our backyard. We came together through the realisation the transmission line will divide a narrow corridor between Darley and the Lerderderg State Park; altering landscape character, causing widespread damage to critical habitat for threatened species, increasing fire risk to the Park and thousands of residents, destroy our visual amenity, harm local agriculture and will impact businesses and property values. It will completely desecrate, in a few years, what nature has taken millions of years to create.
