Galilee Basin Transmission Project


Several mining proponents are proposing to develop large-scale coal mines in the Galilee Basin region, which will result in a substantial increase in electricity demand.  To meet this potential growth, Powerlink is proposing to extend its existing network into the region via two stages.


Powerlink is proposing to extend its existing network into the Galilee Basin with all project timings being subject to mining investment decisions.

To date, Powerlink has resumed a small number of land parcels for the Galilee Basin Transmission Project. Powerlink will seek to resume the balance of easements for both stages of the project, subject to mining investment decisions. For a full list of anticipated project timings please see the tables below.

Powerlink will continue to keep local residents informed throughout the project and we thank landowners and other key stakeholders for their cooperation and input thus far. Further information about the project can be downloaded from the Newsletters and notices page below.
