Notification of Proposed nbnTM Radio Network Base Station Facility
The National Broadband Network (nbn) is a high speed broadband network designed to reach
100 per cent of Australian premises and provide the communications infrastructure to help us
stop falling behind in an increasingly online world.
nbn is committed to delivering leading edge broadband services to all Australians by leveraging
the three types of technology available – fixed line, fixed wireless and satellite, depending on
As part of the fixed radio (wireless) component of the Network, nbn is proposing to expand the
existing radio network base station at 5765 Bass Highway, INVERLOCH VIC 3996 (Lot 3 on PS
133742) to provide high quality wireless broadband services to customers in the surrounding
The facilities proposed will involve the replacement of an existing panel antenna with a new
antenna, plus the installation of 3 additional panel antennas (dimensions approx 750mm height
x 300mm width x 115mm depth) on the existing tower. The installation of associated radio
equipment RRU’s (dimensions approx 50cm height x 43cm in width x 13cm depth) are also to be
added to new and existing panel antennas. Furthermore the current single equipment shelter
will be replaced by 2 new ground based equipment shelters adjacent to the tower.
nbn regards the proposed installation as a Low Impact Facility under the Telecommunications
(Low-Impact Facilities) Determination 1997. In the circumstances, it does not require planning
approval from Bass Coast Shire Council.

Traffic volumes increase during the holiday
period and you’ll be sharing the road not only
with other cars, but also pedestrians, cyclists,
heavy trucks, buses, campervans and vehicles
towing boats or caravans.
“Now is the time to get your learner driver
out on the road so they can start to experience
the extra driving challenge with the security of a
supporting driver,” said Terry Birss, CEO Road
Safety Education (RSE).
RSE is a not for profit organisation intent on
reducing road trauma among young drivers,
by educating high school students through its
highly acclaimed RYDA program, which pro-
vides powerful workshops to change the way
young people think about road safety.
RSE has strong support from corporate
partners BOC, Toyota Australia, Bosch and
Bridgestone, along with Rotary Clubs, whose
volunteers coordinate the program in their lo-

good behaviour during this high stress time” he
“Education is paramount to decreasing the
road toll, along with increased policing, govern-
ment campaigns, safe roads and vehicles.”
There are many tips which are worth taking
on board to ensure a safe and happy driving
• Buckle up
• Observe speed limits
• Have a positive attitude on the road
• Don’t follow cars too closely – keep a three
• Limit distractions: mobile phone, mobile
watches, music, radio and chatty passengers
• Leave plenty of time for the trip – be pre-
• Be aware of changing weather conditions
• If you plan to have a drink, plan not to drive.
RSE ambassador Peter Frazer, whose daugh-
ter Sarah was killed by another vehicle, along
with a tow truck driver, who had stopped to
help, when her car broke down, knows only too
well the trauma of losing a loved one.
“Each of us must drive to actively protect oth-
er road users and especially those road users
involved in, or assisting at, a crash, breakdown
or other incident,” he said.
“People die. Families are shattered. Encour-
age people to take responsibility for driving
safely because no one wants a friend or family
member to be killed or injured.”
It’s time to plan family gatherings, holidays
and time with friends, not hospital bedside
