The City commenced upgrading existing street lights to LED street lighting on the 5th October 2021. Majority of works will be scheduled and conducted during daylight hours however, some roads may have require night works to accommodate for traffic. Please follow any traffic control in place during these works. Please drive with caution and follow any traffic control instruction and signage in place accordingly.
These lighting upgrades will be done over four (4) stages.
Western Power own and operates the vast majority of streetlights within the City. They pass on their costs to Synergy who in turn bill the City for the full operating costs incurred by Synergy and Western Power in provision of street lighting.
Below is the outline of works and areas to be upgraded. Please note, other stage information will become available once confirmed and finalised.
Timeframes are subject to change, due to Western Power contractor availability and weather conditions.
Properties should receive advanced notifications via Australia Post prior to works commencing. Properties located adjacent to the proposed works may experience temporary disturbance to the verge areas and may include some crossovers.
Any such disturbances will be fully reinstated after the completion of the works.
Please be assured that every effort will be made during these works to minimise impact on those who live nearby and also to the environment.
If you have any queries regarding this matter, please contact the City via the details provided below.
The new lights will appear to be brighter than
old in many cases due to different light colour and the age of older light
fittings. The LED lighting output will be 3,000K “warm white” lighting as per WP standard. If the new lights are
affecting you, please contact the City to discuss and provide further assistance.
