TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland
We the undersigned are petitioning against the imposed high voltage transmission lines and sub-station that Powerlink propose to run dangerously close to family homes, through a significant wild life corridor and prime productive agricultural land. That is, close to Eumundi, from Eerwah Vale through Ridgewood. The impact on our community flora and fauna will be devastating. We are most concerned and strongly suggest either a more sustainable option or to move the lines away from this area where there will be less impact on the environment and the people, such as to put the lines underground and relocate the sub-station in keeping with current overseas standards and studies.
