City lights up popular park area

Friday, 13 April 2018 

Lighting in the Jetty Baths precinct is set to improve with the City of Bunbury upgrading the current lighting infrastructure over the next few weeks.

About 10 to 12 units will be replaced with LEDs in a bid to improve security and visibility in the area.

The LEDs will also allow for a reduction in operational costs and more than 50% saving in electricity usage.

The project aligns with the City’s recently adopted Strategic Community Plan and forms part of an ongoing program to be implemented over the next four years as part of the City’s Long Term Financial Plan.

A new ablution block is also currently being installed at the area to replace the temporary amenities. The new facilities will include a Universal Access Toilet and an ambulant cubicle.

Portable toilet facilities are on site while the works are being carried out.

Bunbury Deputy Mayor Jaysen De San Miguel said the upgraded lighting would enhance the popular family area.

“Better and brighter lighting will make families feel safer and allow them to spend more time at the Jetty Baths precinct,” Mr Miguel said.

“Jetty Baths is already a popular destination for residents and visitors to Bunbury and these improvements will further enhance their experience.”

Both the lighting and new ablution facility are due for completion within this financial year.
