New online engagement room

An online engagement room has launched today for communities to find out more about the Project.

Take a virtual walk around the room and explore lots of information about the project’s benefits, timelines, the Environment Effects Statement (EES) process and an interactive map of the proposed route.

The new online tool expands on the project’s comprehensive community engagement initiatives and activities that includes community drop-in sessions, online webinars and stakeholder briefings.

The online room is another way for people to learn about the project and provide feedback as we continue preparing the EES for the project. All feedback received helps the project team to minimise impacts, maximise benefits and meet commitments made to the community.

The EES is expected to be submitted in late-2022 to the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning for review before being exhibited for public comment.

About the project

The Western Victoria Transmission Network Project is a proposed new 190km high-voltage electricity transmission line that will carry renewable energy from Bulgana in western Victoria to Sydenham in Melbourne’s north-west.

The project is critical infrastructure required to unlock the renewable energy potential of western Victoria as a key Renewable Energy Zone and will help to deliver clean and affordable energy to Victorians.

Once complete, the additional transmission line capacity will carry enough energy to power more than 500,000 homes.
