Aussie Mandias has been awarded a $A1.9 million contract to deliver lighting and CCTV upgrades in Alice Springs.

Locations lighting and CCTV will be installed include Stott Tce Bridge, Trevor Reid Park, Billy Goat Hill, Leichhardt Tce and Tuncks Rd causeway. The works will include the installation of additional CCTV cameras in priority locations, which will be connected to the NT Police CCTV network.

The Lighting Masterplan identified areas within the CBD that are poorly lit and may be susceptible to anti-social behaviour. Through this works package, a number of lighting upgrades will provide a safer more vibrant CBD.

Overall, the Territory Government is investing $20 million to reinvigorate and create a safer and more vibrant Alice Springs CBD for locals and visitors to enjoy. Through this investment, $15 million has been allocated for CBD revitalisation projects, and $5 million towards the Breaking the Cycle of Crime plan.

Construction of this lighting and CCTV upgrade is scheduled for completion late 2021.
