Corridors Announced and calls for nominations to Community Consultation Groups CCGs

An Area of Interest (AoI) was identified in early 2020 based on a range of technical investigations on the land between Bulgana and Sydenham.

Following consideration of community consultation and feedback, along with early investigations, AusNet Services has now narrowed down the AoI to corridors. These corridors will be considered, along with the output of further community and landowner consultation, to identify to a single corridor and refine a final route.

The priority in identifying the corridors is to recognise opportunities to minimise and mitigate the potential impact of new infrastructure on the environment and communities while delivering a project that meets its technical and economic objectives.

Community feedback received during early engagement, combined with the findings of technical investigations, have helped identify the corridors and other project alternatives, including undergrounding, that will be subject to further environmental, social and technical investigations.

Please register to keep in touch with the project and for future opportunities to participate in the engagement process.
