Wodonga Council has installed 50 solar lights along key shared pathways to improve natural surveillance and deter anti-social behaviour.
The lights are an all-in-one solar LED light with motion detection that increases brightness as someone approaches the lights.
The solar lights are installed in Felix Grundy Park, Dick Street, Parkers Road and Moorefield Park Drive, which link other illuminated shared pathways.
The lights also cover Parkers Rd and Moorefield Park Drive to the underpass at Wodonga TAFE and complete the link from Forrest Mars Ave to Belvoir Park.
This continuation of path lighting completes key linkages to the existing path networks already benefiting from previous installations and connects to major community facilities including Wodonga TAFE, Victory Primary School and La Trobe University.
The additional solar lightings complement more than 150 existing solar lights across Wodonga already in place along House Creek, Belvoir Park, and Gateway Island with linkages to numerous parks and playgrounds.
The project received $140,000 from the government’s Public Safety Infrastructure Fund.
