What is the purpose of the new lighting?

    The purpose is to encourage more people to visit and spend time in the street through the artistic and culturally sensitive lighting installations that create a well-illuminated and inviting environment.

    This will include an upgrade of the functional lighting and new creative lighting installation with a day and night presence, creating a sense of vibrancy that draws on elements of the Central Markets and Chinese culture.

    Why have murals been included in the lighting design?

    We have included murals in the creative lighting design with a day and night presence to enhance the artistic and cultural reference to modern China.

    When will the installation of the lighting upgrade begin?

    It will begin in December 2019 and be completed by 20 January 2020.

    What will be different?

    The creative lighting and artistic murals on the buildings will create a significant physical difference in the street and an exciting sense of vibrancy.  The functional lighting will harmonize with the creative lighting and ensure the street is well illuminated. Please refer to the attached visuals for more information.

    Can I still access the business in the street during construction?

    Yes, the street will be open and operating for business as normal. There will be construction staging plans available prior to the construction beginning. There will be limited access to some public areas from time to time.

    When is the Moonta Street foot path and paving being upgraded?

    A street upgrade design (including the paving) has been completed and the construction is estimated to begin in March 2021.

    Who can I contact for more information?

    Please contact Project Manager Cherie Armfield on (08) 8203 7646.
