LED street lighting replacement program

In partnership with SA Power Networks and their subsidiary company Enerven, we’re upgrading residential street lights to LED.

Around 3,000 LED street lights have been installed at an investment of $1.2 million. The forecast financial savings from electricity and tariffs will be up to $500,000 per year. 

Switching to LED lighting will significantly decrease Council’s street light energy and maintenance costs, help protect the environment and improve visibility on roads and footpaths.

The new lights are more energy efficient, require less maintenance and generate a warm-to-white light (around 3000 Kelvin). LED street lights spread light more evenly along and across footpaths and roads to improve visibility.

Street lighting is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions by local government in Australia. When completed, this project will reduce carbon emissions by approximately 480 tonnes of greenhouse gas annually, equivalent to removing 100 cars off the road each year.

 

Tree planting along Golden Grove Road

Approximately two hundred trees were planted along Golden Grove Road – mainly on the eastern side between Yatala Vale Road and Grenfell Road between July and September 2023. 

It’s all part of Tea Tree Gully Council’s plans to create a dense corridor of native trees and shrubs along this upgraded section of Golden Grove Road.   

City beautification – Tree Screens

Tree screen renewal work will take place on Green Valley Drive, Endeavour Drive, and the Golden Way.

This project involves removing old vegetation, cleaning the site, preparing the land, improving the soil, adding irrigation, mulching, and planting new trees and shrubs.

The project will start in late April 2024 and is scheduled to finish by late June 2024.
