Power giant walks away

August 9, 2011

EERWAH Vale’s Jack Connolly and his Powerlines Action Group Eumundi (PAGE) team reckon they know how David felt after bringing Goliath crashing back down to earth. From where the residents of this Noosa hinterland Land For Wildlife stronghold have been bunkered down for the past four years almost to the day, they have taken on a $100 million Powerlink juggernaut and sent the energy company engineers and their 275,000 volt powerlines packing.

 

Last month the PAGE activists – local residents in Eerwah Vale and Ridgewood, not prepared to sit back and lose their wildlife to massive powerline pylons – welcomed the five-year deferment of the Woolooga to Eerwah Vale transmission line and Eerwah Vale substation project.

 

But they were adamant the State Government-inspired rethink did not go far enough. They demanded a meeting with Powerlink executives and a pledge to kill the project stone dead. But he said PAGE was not about to let Powerlink just walk away from what they had put the local community through over the years and would seek not only answers for their past actions, but funding to help with koala habitat rehabilitation.
