The City of Bunbury has launched a decorative lighting project at eight key locations throughout the CBD
The City of Bunbury has completed a decorative lighting project at eight key locations throughout the City’s CBD including Marlston Hill Lookout, Koombana Bay Footbridge, Koombana Bay Foreshore, Marlston Waterfront, Guppy Park, the Navigators at the Koombana Drive roundabout, Richmond Reserve and the historic Arrol Crane at Jetty Road.
The decorative lighting project will add to the City’s vibrant culture, connect the community and welcome visitors into the CBD year-round. The eight locations will be illuminated for key City events and important dates such as NAIDOC week and National Volunteers Week and other public awareness campaigns. In partnering with VROC and local contractors JCW Electrical, the project includes the installation of new high-grade efficient LED lights which are all remotely connected to one centralised platform.
The City will have unparalleled control over these lights, with the ability to monitor their live status, preset lighting for events and alert on faults with further capability for predictive maintenance alerts in the future. This goes hand in hand with the City’s efforts to build a safe, cohesive community while continuing to enhance its vibrant city centre. This project is part of an overall objective to use digital technology to improve and automate services and facilities across the City.
The City, through the use of VROC’s Smart City Platform, can now remotely monitor and control both decorative lighting, stormwater pump stations and lighting at the Hay Park sporting precinct.
