Almost the entire Bargara Esplanade will soon be fitted with smart technology that will allow for greater control of lighting including dimming and motion sensor capabilities.
A tender has been released for the installation of the smart pedestrian lights, which is part of the Reducing Urban Glow project, with a view to having it operational by mid-2020.
The tender for the smart lighting technology closes in early January.
The Reducing Urban Glow project has been supported by the Australian Government under the Smart Cities and Suburbs program.
Project partners include Bundaberg Regional Council, Queensland Department of Environment and Science, Ergon Energy, Burnett Mary Regional Group, Central Queensland University, The Prince’s Trust Australia and Greenfleet, Bundaberg Tourism and Sea Turtle Alliance.
