Wynnum Foreshore lighting upgrade

Construction of the Wynnum Foreshore lighting upgrade from Breakwater Park to the Whales Aquatic Park and in Drevesen Park will start in late February, weather permitting.

The 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

Installation of new LED lights will take place.

The Wynnum 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. 

Project timing

The works are expected to be completed by mid-2019.

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.
