Win News Reports on AusNet Project

The risk of endangering nearby communities

AusNet’s Comment at the end of the video is unsurprising, where they state “Overhead Transmissions Lines are standard practice across Australia, and are the most technically, economically and environmentally sensitive way to deliver the project”.

The delivery of rail services in Bangladesh, as depicted in the following scenario, is also standard practice and the most technically, economically and environmentally sensitive way to deliver the service there, but would we Australians accept that standard here also? Just because it’s done a certain way, doesn’t mean it’s right. Australia is a first world country and we can do better, AusNet !

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.
