Sandgate foreshore lighting upgrade - stage 2

Brisbane City Council will start construction of stage 2 of the Sandgate foreshore lighting upgrade in early 2020.

Works will take place from Ninth Avenue at Arthur Davis Park to Cliff Street, and Cliff Street to Shorncliffe Pier, Sandgate. Preparation works are expected to start onsite in late 2019, before construction commences in early 2020.

Construction of stage 1 of the Sandgate foreshore lighting upgrade from Nineteenth Avenue to Eighth Avenue, Sandgate is now complete. Stage 1 of the upgrade project removed and replaced the existing pedestrian lighting infrastructure along the foreshore pathway. The new poles are marine grade painted stainless steel poles.

About the project

The works for stage 2 of the Sandgate foreshore lighting upgrade project will include:

  • installing conduits and electrical infrastructure
  • removing and replacing the existing lighting infrastructure with the marine-grade stainless steel, painted light poles and LED lights along the foreshore pathway.

Project impacts

Throughout construction, the local community can expect:

  • construction-related noise, dust and vibration
  • minor tree trimming to enable the installation of the LED lights.

The works will take near the existing foreshore pathway and may result in temporary access changes. Follow the onsite signage during construction. Safe pedestrian and cyclist access around the site and along pathways will be maintained during construction.

Project timing

Construction will take place between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Saturday, weather permitting. Council is committed to keeping residents informed of construction in the area and will provide advance notification of out-of-hours work.

This project is expected to be completed by mid-2020.

Every effort will be made to minimise disruption to the local community during this work. Advance notification of noisy works, or major access changes, will be provided to properties in the works area.

Project benefits

The project will improve lighting for all foreshore park users. This is part of Council's commitment to keeping Brisbane clean and green to make our city liveable and sustainable for the future.
