We are seeking your feedback on the corridor options via the online interactive map, to add to the information the community provided last year.
Please drop a pin to leave your comments in relation to the following:
- Tell us how you use your local roads? e.g. School bus routes, farm machinery, horse riding
- Help us to see the corridors from your perspective. Please upload images.
- Have we missed any important areas, such as Indigenous or Cultural Heritage?
- Do you have any other feedback relating to the Areas of Investigation for the Environment Effects Statement?
Your feedback is being used alongside technical investigations to help identify a single corridor and refine a final route.
For more information about the technical investigations as part of the Environment Effects Statement (EES) process, please see the scoping requirements on the DELWP website: https://www.planning.vic.gov.au/environment-assessment/browse-projects/projects/western-victoria-transmission-network-project
Determining the project route
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 consultation, to identify to a single corridor and refine a final route.
We encourage you to read the information pins which describe the various sections of the corridors on the website.
AusNet Services acknowledges the uncertainty and concern a project of this scale may cause, particularly for potentially affected landowners and communities. We have engaged an independent counselling service to provide support to community members and we strongly encourage people to use this service. To find out more, please contact Benestar directly on 1300 360 364.
