PAGE is encouraging the State Government and its agencies to devise more sustainable and visually acceptable alternatives to Powerlink\'s current proposal for giant power pylons through Eerwah Vale and a substation at Eumundi in the Sunshine Coast\'s hinterland, Queensland. The organisation is doing this by reviewing issues such as alternative routes for the transmission lines, renewable energy options, energy demand management and undergrounding the lines. PAGE\'s suggestions address the short to medium term needs of the electricity network, while seeking viable and sustainable long-term solutions that are more in keeping with Government and community thinking.
If Powerlink proceeds with its plans:
* Eerwah Vale, Belli Park and Ridgewood (Tourist Route 22 on the way to Kenilworth) - an area of outstanding natural beauty that residents and visitors love and enjoy - will be ruined forever
* Wildlife corridors will be destroyed
* The uglification of the Hinterland can only decrease property value throughout the area
