Upgrading the lighting in Hyde Park

Project Status: Closed

Public consultation period to

Why we’re doing this

This upgrade will help keep the area safe and accessible for the thousands of visitors who enjoy the park and is part of the Hyde Park masterplan improvement works.

What we’re doing

This upgrade will:

  • replace old lighting with new fixtures and warm light LEDs to reduce energy consumption. The light poles will be designed to resemble the existing light pole silhouette to retain the heritage park character and will be constructed of sustainable aluminium.
  • simplify the lighting in the lawn areas with a reduced number of mast lights providing a wash of light for safety and night-time events.
  • allow us to better meter, monitor and manage the Hyde Park lighting network.
  • upgrade the power supply in Hyde Park and add new meters. New power bollards will be located in discreet locations to allow events to access power safely.
