Lighting At Public Ovals - Continued Outage

Published on Wednesday, 19 June 2019 at 12:00:00 AM

Sporting clubs and community are advised that the lighting system issue is ongoing, and automated lighting for sporting grounds and community ovals is still not operational.

Community members are advised that general lighting on Goanna and Boomerang Ovals which usually operates between the hours 6pm – 8pm will not be operational during this period.

Sporting Clubs with public oval bookings which requiring lighting for training and events during this period have been given access to turn on the lights manually, and access keys have been provided where needed. Clubs are asked to ensure relevant members have access to the keys and procedures.

This is a temporary measure only, until the replacement integrated lighting system is supplied and installed. The Shire of East Pilbara staff are working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible and will keep clubs and community updated on the status of the work.

Until the system is operational again, for urgent after hours issues with lighting at public ovals, please contact Ranger Services Duty Officer on 0419 860 376.
