Completed projects

Stage One (2014-2016)

Light Years Ahead street lighting roll-out

Western Sydney’s first Light Years Ahead street lighting project was completed between 2014-2016 thanks to funding from the Australian Government.

Over two years, 14, 941 end-of-life mercury vapour streetlights were replaced with efficient LED lights across 136 suburbs.

The project was delivered on time, on budget, and far exceeded the project target of changing 12,770 mercury vapour lights to LEDs.

Over the next 20 years the project is expected to save councils $20 million in energy bills and prevent 91,000 tonnes of carbon emissions.
