Works to replace carpark lights in Dorset Square with energy efficient LEDs will start from 21 March.
The lighting upgrades are scheduled over 2 to 4 nights to minimise disruption in the area.
A total of 39 lights will be replaced in Dorset Square. These works are a continuation of our Street light replacement initiative. Since 2016, we have replaced 10,600 street lights with energy efficient LED globes.
Other benefits of LED street lights include providing more reliable and uniform light at night, improving the amenity and sense safety in our local streets, and lowering maintenance costs due to its longer lifespan.
The streetlight replacement initiative is an important action in our Climate Response Plan 2021-2031, which aims to reduce greenhouse emissions in our community to net zero by 2040.
In the coming months, we will be replacing around 500 street lights on main roads in Boronia with LEDs. This is a key initiative of the Boronia Revitalisation Project and is supported by the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions. These works will reduce up to 2,900 tonnes of greenhouse gases over the next 20 years.
