City of Boroondara – Gardiners Creek Trail

Leadsun installed 27 x Alpha AE6 Solar lights for the City of Boroondara along the Ashburton section of Gardiners Creek Trail.

Walking and cycling on the Gardiners Creek Trail just got safer thanks to Leadsun’s ‘next-generation’ solar lighting installed throughout the Gardiners Creek Trail in Ashburton, Melbourne. The Gardiners Creek Trail is used by more than 2000 cyclists and 1000 pedestrians every day and the Boroondara City Council wanted to make it as safe as possible. With this in mind, overhead solar powered lights have been installed where the path winds through Markham Reserve as well as a small section at SolwayBridge.

The project has utilised Leadsun’s latest LED innovation which provides outstanding lumen performance and a ‘controlled’ lighting footprint which distributes light directly and evenly onto the pathway without any spill light. The project also utilises a unique lowerable lighting column (www.ezypole.com) which allows the lighting system to be easily lowered to ground level by one person, this has great benefit when the solar panels need to be periodically cleaned.

Council believes the improved safety will lead to an increase in the number of commuter and recreational shared path users on the Gardiners Creek Trail.
