Sandgate Foreshore lighting upgrade | Brisbane City Council

Sandgate Foreshore lighting upgrade

Construction of the Sandgate Foreshore lighting upgrade from Nineteenth Avenue to Eighth Avenue, Sandgate, will start late January, weather permitting.

The Sandgate Foreshore lighting upgrade project removes and replaces the existing pedestrian lighting infrastructure along the foreshore pathway. The existing poles will be replaced with marine grade painted stainless steel poles.

About the project

The Sandgate Foreshore lighting upgrade is part of Council’s commitment to keeping Brisbane clean and green to make our city liveable and sustainable for the future. 

Installation of new LED lights will take place. This will match those delivered as part of the shared foreshore pathway upgrade near Eventide Retirement Home, north of Nineteenth Avenue, Sandgate.

Project timing

The works to install new electrical conduits and pits is expected to be completed by mid-2019. Installation of the new poles and luminaires will occur in 2019/20 financial year, subject to budget.

Project benefits

The project aims to improve lighting for all foreshore park users.

Impacts during construction

Throughout construction the local community can expect some construction-related noise, dust and vibration during the works.

The works will take place adjacent to the existing foreshore pathway. This may result in temporary access changes. Please follow the on-site signage. Safe pedestrian and cyclist access around the worksite and along the pathways will be maintained throughout construction.

Some minor tree trimming may be required to enable the installation of the LED lights.

Construction will take place between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Saturday, weather permitting. We're committed to keeping the community informed of construction in their area and will provide advance notification of out-of-hours activities.

Every effort will be made to minimise disruption to the local community during this work. Advance notification of particularly noisy works or major access changes, including driveway disruptions, will be provided to residents within the works area.
