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.
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.
