Street light upgrades

In 2020, the Town received $300,000 from the Commonwealth Government under the Community Development Grants Programme, administered by the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, and Communications. The purpose of the grant was to conduct lighting upgrades in Carlisle and East Victoria Park, following on from a previous grant from the Federal Safer Communities Fund which saw more than 100 streetlights upgraded throughout St James, East Victoria Park, and Burswood.

In 2021 and 2022, the Town utilised another Commonwealth Government Grant to upgrade approximately 26 existing streetlights in Carlisle to LED lights nearby Carlisle and Oats Street train stations, install underground power, and install 35 lighting poles with LED lights in East Victoria Park, primarily along Terminus Lane close to the Albany Highway entertainment strip. Lighting upgrades at these hotspots are designed to provide a number of benefits to the community, including a greater feeling of safety, more vibrancy, and a better environment for business.
