Bass Coast Shire has awarded a contract to RJC Electrical Solutions Pty Ltd to carry out the Design and Construction of Oval lightings at Oval 2 Wonthaggi Recreation Reserve. This project represents yet another significant investment in sport and recreation facilities across the Shire.

This field lighting project was identified as a priority within Council’s Active Bass Coast Plan. Active Bass Coast Plans sets a 10-year Plan for the provision of open space and recreation services and facilities across the municipality.

This project has already commenced with the design works and is anticipated that the site establishment to be completed mid November. Council recognises that it can be a challenge to deliver the necessary works and not affect key recreational user groups, especially when much of our work is determined by weather conditions and any COVID impacts. The design works are well underway, and the delivery of lighting poles and fixtures are anticipated to be delivered to site in early December 2022. The trenching and electrical conduit installation works are expected to commence in mid November once the design works completed.

This project will result in:

  • Design, Supply & Installation of four lighting poles and lighting fixtures, including associated ancillary infrastructure to cater for 100 Lux LED lighting of the reserves.
  • Removal of existing lighting poles and lighting fixtures.
