Update to the proposed Western Renewables Link route

As a result of further investigations and additional information collected, AusNet has refined some sections of the Western Renewables Link proposed route.

Since announcing the proposed route for the Western Renewables Link in November of 2021, AusNet has continued listening to feedback from landholders and stakeholders and has been conducting further surveys and technical studies.

These refinements will help to further reduce the impact of the proposed route on properties, visual amenity, Aboriginal cultural heritage, ecology and more.

All updates can be viewed online using the project’s detailed interactive map or in the updated fact sheet that details the changes in each area and why they have been made.

Land Liaison Officers will continue discussions with landholders along the proposed route to understand land use, consult on tower locations and access tracks and provide information about the compensation process.

AusNet’s Land Liaison Officers have contacted landholders affected by these changes. If you have a property within the proposed route but don’t have an officer, please contact us via info@westernrenewableslink.com.au or 1300 360 795.

About the project

The Western Renewables Link is a proposed electricity transmission line that will carry renewable energy from western Victoria to homes across the state and into the National Electricity Market.

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.
