- Project typeCapital Works
- Project value$931,000
- Project scheduleTo be completed by June 2019
- Contractor nameTelstra Corp
In June 2017 we submitted an application for grant funding as part of Australian Government Department of Industry, Innovation and Science (DIIS) Smart Cities and Suburbs Program. An agreement with DIIS was signed in February 2018 which allows the project to be funded 50% DIIS and 50% Council. During project planning, the project team determined that due to the tight grant funding compliance restrictions, Contract No. 22/2018 for Queanbeyan Smart City Precinct for the provision of smart city services including free public Wi-Fi, smart lighting, smart parking, smart safety and installation of environmental sensors, should be combined into one contract.
The objective of the Smart City project is to deliver a smart city infrastructure in Queanbeyan’s CBD that includes:
- Free Public Wi-Fi
- Smart Street Lighting
- Smart Parking
- CCTV including video analytics
- Environmental Sensors for Emissions, Noise & Traffic
- 3D Digital City Modelling
The smart lighting will be constructed using modern LED luminaires that will become brighter when pedestrians are in the area, this technology will provide more vibrant areas with a feeling of safety. The trial of smart parking will ensure that vehicles operating within the CBD will be able to locate vacant car parking spaces using technology as opposed to driving around looking for vacant spaces.
