The City of Wodonga has installed eight new solar-powered lights to complete the illumination of a cycling and walking path, helping to make it safer, more accessible and lower emissions.

The LED lights have motion sensors that enable them to brighten when walkers or riders approach and dim to 30 per cent of power when nobody is nearby.

The new lights are also cheaper to run and maintain than traditional lighting, and they help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Two new lights have also been installed in Graeme Sutherland Park, behind the Belgrade Avenue Pre-School.

The lights are part of an ongoing Council program to make it easier for people to travel through parklands from the CBD to reserves, shops and homes.

Similar systems have also been installed at:

  • Birallee Park
  • David Bishop Park
  • Arthur Dunstan Park
  • Frank Krier and George Looms Park
  • Westlands Park, and
  • James Taverny Park

More than 200 solar lights have now been installed along Wodonga’s pathways and Council plans to add more as funding becomes available.
