Berry - Showground gets serious lighting


Shoalhaven City Council has recently completed the installation of six new 22 metre high light towers at Berry Showground.  

The recently completed works include the installation of six light towers, energy efficient LED floodlights and a smart phone controller system; allowing sportsground users the ability to operate the lights via a phone-based system.  

The project cost of $150,000 was funded by Council and is another step towards creating safer, energy efficient facilities for sportsgrounds in the Shoalhaven. Berry Management Committee member Bill Seelis was pleased to see the improved Showground lighting and the benefits it will bring to the community.
