New details of a contentious plan to build a network of powerlines across a 200-kilometre stretch of western Victoria have been released.
AusNet, which is building the Western Victoria Transmission Network Project to connect to renewable energy sources near Stawell with a power station at Sydenham, on Melbourne’s fringe, has released a map highlighting corridors where the powerlines may go.
The company’s executive project director Stephanie McGregor said the route between Ballarat and the windfarm only presented one option, but between Ballarat and Melbourne, there were multiple routes under consideration.
- The Western Victoria Transmission Network Project will connect renewable energy sources near Stawell to Melbourne
- The final route for the powerlines is due to be finalised midway through this year
- Communities along the potential routes are concerned about the project’s effect on them
