Alternative 132kV Powerline Route

The feasibility of an alternative 132kV powerline route from the wind farm site to TransGrid’s existing 330kV transmission line has been investigated. Epuron carried out an environmental assessment of the alternative powerline route and submitted a modification application and details of the assessment to the NSW Department of Planning and Infrastructure. The planning documents will be on public exhibition from Wednesday 30 January until Friday 15 February 2013 and can be viewed at several locations including at:
•Glen Innes Severn Council - Town Hall Office, 265 Grey Street; Engineering Office, 136 Church Street; and Learning Centre, 71 Grey Street
•Inverell Shire Council - 144 Otho Street
•Guyra Shire Council - 158 Bradley Street

The application and supporting documents can be viewed online at the Department’s website.

Following the exhibition period, the department will assess and determine the proposed alternative powerline route.
