Lighting up Inverloch!


Bass Coast Shire Council has recently installed three new lighting towers at Inverloch’s Thompson Reserve, ready for the start of the 2018 soccer season.

The installation of the lighting towers is a partnership project between Inverloch Stars Soccer Club, Sport and Recreation Victoria, Inverloch Cricket Club and Optus.

A fourth tower will be installated in March and will integrate a telecommunications service.

Council’s General Manager Healthy Communities and Governance, David Elder, says the project will provide training-standard lighting and greater mobile service coverage in the area.

 “Council has been working with the community and other project partners to make this project a success,” he said.

“We will not only have fantastic recreation facilities for the clubs, but more reliable telecommunication services in the local area.”

Other projects completed at the Reserve, or in planning, include a field drainage project, car park construction and increased shedding to accommodate additional community groups.
