Lake Wendouree and Victoria Park Link Lighting Project
The City of Ballarat is partnering with the State Government to deliver the much-anticipated $3.17 million Lake Wendouree and Victoria Park Link Lighting project.
225 lights will be installed around the Lake Wendouree Steve Moneghetti Track and seven lights along Morrison Street, linking Lake Wendouree to nearby Victoria Park.
The lights will provide a safer environment for the lake's 350,000+ annual users, particularly after-hours and during winter months.
The lights will be programmed to automatically turn on and off at times best suited to the needs of lake users, and to also ensure a period of darkness is preserved in line with the recommendation of the Biodiversity Impact Assessment undertaken for the project.
The lights will come on in the evening and turn off at 10pm. The lights will come on at 5.30am and turn off via a sensor that measures the natural light level which differs throughout the year.
The lights are now being commissioned through testing.
As of 13 October:
