Public Lighting Code
The NSW Public Lighting Code, first published January 2006, informs the relationship between Public Lighting Service Providers and Public Lighting Customers.
The Code is being updated to support service standards and make it consistent with National Electricity Law and changes to the role of distribution networks. The updated Code will apply from 1 July 2019.
Changes to the Code are intended to:
- support improvements to road safety and visual amenity
- provide greater certainty of obligations and service levels
- ensure that implementation of, and compliance with, the Code is practical.
The updated NSW Public Lighting Code was informed by public consultation. Submissions were received from:
Central NSW Councils
Local Government NSW
Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia
Riverina Regional Organisation of Councils
Roads and Maritime Services
Southern Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils
Western Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils
Campbelltown City Council
Wollondilly Shire Council
