As part of Wagga Wagga City Council’s ongoing commitment to replace outdated sportsground lighting, we are upgrading to a new LED lighting system at McPherson Oval.
The new 200 Lux LED system will meet the lighting levels needed for training and matches.
The project involves:
- installation of four 30 metre light poles with LED floodlights
- de-commissioning and removal of the old light poles.
The project will also include the installation of a new PA speaker system.
This project is being funded by:
- NSW Government, Stronger Country Communities Fund - $365,171
- Wagga Wagga City Council - $40,945
The new LED lights and the system’s design will have several advantages over the current system including:
- less energy usage
- less carbon emissions
- no flicker
- no UV emissions which mean the lights will attract less insects
- improved lighting for night training and matches
- less spillage of lighting onto adjoining properties.
