The City of Sydney and consultants Complete Urban have completed design and commenced construction of the first stage of work for new traffic/street lighting Smart-poles in King Street Newtown. The first stage installation extends between Missenden Road and Eliza/Windsor Streets.
Individual pole specification will be the determined from the 7.2 metre height range. Each pole location and kerb setback has already been established. Footings have been installed and the poles are to be positioned at 700mm from face of kerb to the centre of the Smart-pole.
To comply with this set-out, modification to twenty-one existing footpath awnings is required to accommodate the lighting Smart-poles. A further seven poles are to be installed in locations where no awning modification is required.
