15 October 2021 - New Lights for Pinewood

In partnership with the Victorian Government, Council is upgrading the sports lighting at Pinewood Reserve, Mount Waverley.  Monash Council will be installing four new 28-metre high sportsground LED lighting poles, with works commencing Monday 25 October 2021 and expected to be completed at the end of March 2022.

 The four new light poles have been expertly designed to be fully compliant with relevant Australian Standards for sports lighting (including AS4282-1997 Control of the Obtrusive Effects of Outdoor Lighting). They will provide 150lux levels and will direct light onto the field. They also have glare shields which will reduce the light spillage to surrounding properties.
