Gympie Regional Council

Project Brief

Two solar lights were required by the council to illuminate the pathway in Gympie, QLD, from Grevillea Gardens to Heather Street. These were required to improve night time use, as the pathway is a trunk pedestrian route for the Southside. A section of the pathway had no street lighting for approximately 500 metres.

The area was not serviced by mains power supply. To install mains power supply would be expensive and also require the removal of significant vegetation.

Our Solution

Supply and installation of 30 Watt Delta, 5.5 Promenade Pole Single Outreach In-ground and Rag Bolt Cage.

Outcome
  • 30 Watt LED Lights
  • Light duration is 23 to 20 hours without charge
  • 5 to 6 hours to fully charge
  • Light can be programmed to dim at specified times
  • No overhead supply wires
  • LED lights have an asymmetrical spread, illuminating the pathway in an elongated pattern preventing "wasted light"
  • Light pole is of a decorative finish (black)
  • Low-carbon footprint - each light saving approximately 1 tonne of CO2 per year
  • No heavy metal in the LED fixtures

 

Testimonial

We used the Saferoads integrated solar lighting in a location that didn’t have an existing network electrical supply. This option provided a solution to illuminating a section of pathway that experienced regular night use. The lights have been in place for 2 years now and we have experienced positive results.
