The Logan and Albert Conservation Association (LACA) completely opposes the proposed new 110 KV Energex sub transmission line from Loganlea to Jimboomba. We believe the proposed network upgrade from Loganlea to Jimboomba does not balance social, environmental and economic considerations as claimed in the Final IAR. LACA shares the concerns of the wider community about the negative impacts on the community as well as the negative impacts on the natural environment and wildlife. Koalas have been historically recorded in this region and continue to survive here. The Final IAR confirms that this proposal will result in a loss of habitat, habitat connectivity and biodiversity, especially in the southern section of this proposed network upgrade along Camp Cable Rd and Waterford Tamborine Rd. Energex is intending to fragment habitat connectivity within 3 bioregional corridors
