Abstract

Every municipality throughout Australia provides street lighting. The provision of street lighting is fundamental to vehicle and pedestrian safety alike. Local Government and State/Private energy providers maintain and control streetlighting. This report focuses on the City of Bunbury (COB) - located two hours south of Perth on the Western Australian south west coastline. The aim of this project is to establish the cost effectiveness of the provision of suburban street lighting within the City by power utility Western Power, compared to the council installing and maintaining its own networks to Australian Standard. The current contract of service between Western Power and the COB for lighting on the majority of its 305km road network expires mid 2006 and COB is now developing a street lighting strategy.
