Underground cabling for the Great Bustard - video 1/3
The transfer into the ground and the subsequent removal of a medium voltage power line in the project area Parndorfer Platte-Heideboden in November 2013 and January 2014, respectively.
In Burgenland and Lower Austria in the last years altogether more than 50 km of medium voltage power lines have first been transferred into the ground and then the overhead cables and pylons have been removed. Therefore larger power line-free areas were recreated for Great Bustards (Otis tarda) by means of the LIFE and LIFE+ project Great Bustard. In these areas the risk of collisions with power lines was eliminated.
