City of Darwin is pleased to announce the substantial completion of the first stage of the Making Mindil Safe project at Mindil Beach Park Area. The project, which commenced in February 2023, involved the replacement of the existing lighting infrastructure with a new Smart lighting system.
The new lighting system boasts several features, including 360-degree and 180-degree lighting modules, CCTV, a PA system, and free Wi-Fi. This state-of-the-art system is the first of its kind in the Territory and is a testament to the City of Darwin's commitment to innovation and excellence. As a part of the project, the existing path lighting along Maria Liveris Drive has been replaced, providing visitors to the iconic Mindil Sunset Market with even better illumination and security.
While the integration of the CCTV camera system, free Wi-Fi provision, and inbuilt Public Address System is still underway, we are confident that these additional features will further enhance the experience for visitors to Mindil Beach Park Area.
The second stage of the project, which involves upgrading the Smart poles of access roads to Mindil Beach Park Area and the footpath between the beach park and Mindil Beach Casino, is scheduled to conclude by December 2023, marking the completion of the entire Making Mindil Safe project.
The completion of this project will be a significant milestone for the City of Darwin, and it reinforces our position as a smart and prosperous city. We are committed to delivering world-class facilities and services for our residents and visitors, and we are proud to have achieved this with the new smart lighting system at Mindil Beach Park Area.
We invite everyone to come and experience the new and improved Mindil Beach Park Area for themselves and to see the benefits of this significant infrastructure project firsthand.
