Proposed overhead powerlines from Alpha Avenue Currumbin to Tugun

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Beryl Bailey
14/71 Mitchell Avenue

Total Signatures - 560

Sponsoring Member: Jan Stuckey MP

Posting Date: 9/06/2010

Tabled Date: 9/06/2010

Responded By: Hon Karen Struthers MP on 28/06/2010

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws the attention of the House to the proposed Mudgeeraba to Tugun power network upgrade in particular to erect overhead powerlines from Alpha Avenue Currumbin to Tugun.


The petitioners therefore request the House to urgently intervene in this project.  They request that the powerlines be placed underground because medical information suggests caution against erecting high voltage lines over dwellings and the overhead lines will deface the tourist scenic drive in the area.
