Tasmania has a large network of powerlines and we use helicopters to inspect them. They can be slow and sometimes hover at low levels. It can be noisy, but it's also really important.
By inspecting powerlines we can ensure they’re maintained appropriately; reducing the risk of unplanned power outages and bushfires. We're working to complete the inspections as quickly as possible, to avoid disruption to residential areas and minimise disturbances to livestock. Thanks for your patience while we undertake this important work.
Upcoming aerial inspectionsBetween 11 and 30 June we’ll be carrying out aerial inspections to understand more about the location and habitat of Tasmanian Wedge-tailed eagles and their nests in the following areas:
Poatina, Bracknell, Deloraine, Elizabeth Town, Hampshire, Moina, Staverton, Sheffield, Kindred, Gawler, Heybridge, Burnie, Camdale, Ridgley, Highclere
