VETO is a community organisation committed to preventing ENERGEX from turning the already fragile Logan River valley into a power line easement, clearing 42.5 hectares of Logan koala habitat, and destroying the amenity and property values of local residents.   

Our position on the ENERGEX proposed Loganlea to Jimboomba 110kV powerline is:-

"The FIAR [Energex Final Interim Assessment Report proposal] is in contradiction to key planning and legislative documents, carries out a damaging environmental precedent through incompatible land use and in no way represents best practice in environmental, social and cultural standards expected in Australia in the 21st Century. Where other viable options exist, a project with as many fundamental flaws in policy, application and public opinion should not be considered."

Boring machine used to create the power pole base [ref FIAR 16-4]. How can this construction be considered low impact ?

Example of a concrete power pole affected by severe weather (Moranbah 2008), yes these poles can fall over !

This website is intended to provide information for local residents and anyone interested in the issues, especially those who want a better outcome for our community than what is being proposed by Energex.  We need to protect the Logan River bioregional corridor and Koala habitat for current and future generations.

Don't think you can't do anything about it - THAT IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE .....GET INVOLVED TODAY!
