Project Description: City of Logan proposes to upgrade the lighting at the roundabouts at Homestead Drive/Poinciana Drive and Homestead Drive/Coachwood Drive, including a section of Homestead Drive that links to the new development at Flagstone (shopping centre precinct).

The project will install LED lighting with smart controls to bring energy efficiency and ability to manage and control them remotely as key benefits to Council and to broader community.
