ALBERTON WINDFARM PROPOSAL
A 600-turbine windfarm has been proposed by Synergy Wind for the Alberton coastline. It is understood that several landowners have already signed up, which places a caveat on their land should the owner wish to sell. A huge wind-monitoring tower has been erected south of the highway - this is not a telecommunications tower as has been suggested. Synergy Wind were unsuccessful in their attempt to construct an eight-turbine windfarm at Devon North, even though VCAT over-ruled a decision by the Wellington Shire not to issue a permit. Hopefully Synergy Wind will provide further information and consider public opinion. See Synergy-Wind webpage.

IMPORTANT - PLEASE BE CAREFUL ON OUR ROADS
Whereas Yarram and Port Albert are located in one of the finest regions of Australia, we are also in the vicinity of timber plantations and a timber mill. Some, but not all, log truck drivers seem to think they own the road and their testosterone is boosted by their own weapon of mass destruction which they drive without much consideration nor intelligence for anyone else on the road. The community has been outraged by another car-log truck accident over the Easter 2009 weekend which left one injured adult and two injured children - and a family car written off. Private legal action  is being considered as Vic Roads and police don't seem to be able to do anything if the log-trucks speed on narrow unmade roads, hog the centre of the road and cut corners - as allegedly happened recently. The situation is so bad that local residents in some areas have been issued with, or provide their own radios to tune in as to where the log-trucks are - but that is no help to visitors. Be particularly careful on Bolgers Road, Devon North; Roberts Road, Calrosssie; the Hyland Way between Traralgon and Yarram, and the Albert River Road and Christies-Albert River Road in the Binginwarrie area - and connecting roads in these areas. Visitors to beautiful Hiawatha must take exceptional care especially around the Stacy's Bridge area.
