Forest Lake junior sports field lighting upgrade project

Construction works to install new lighting infrastructure at Forest Lake junior sports field at College Avenue, Forest Lake started in early April 2019. 

The Forest Lake junior sports field lighting upgrade project will construct six new light poles and install new electrical infrastructure on the eastern oval. 

The project aims to provide lighting to the eastern field to a standard that allows for night-time practice or local level competition.

Brisbane City Council expects that works will be completed by mid-August 2019, weather and construction conditions permitting.

Construction works will include:

  • trenching and excavation works to install new electrical infrastructure
  • construction of light pole foundations
  • construction of six new luminaire poles. 

The Forest Lake Sports Field lighting upgrade is in line with Council’s commitment towards creating new lifestyle and leisure opportunities, with better facilities and venues for all ages to enjoy.

Project impacts

  • Throughout construction the local community can expect some construction related noise, dust and vibration during the works. 
  • The works will take place on the eastern oval (closest to College Avenue).
  • The work areas will be fenced during construction.
  • Construction will take place between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Friday, weather permitting. 
  • Council is committed to keeping the community informed of construction in their area and will provide advance notification of out-of-hours activities. 
  • Safe pedestrian and cyclist access around the worksite and along the pathways will be maintained throughout construction.

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 will be provided to properties within the works area.
