Transport Canberra and City Services


Transport Canberra and City Services (TCCS) owns over 78,000 streetlights and footpath lights in the ACT. ActewAGL maintains the asset and supplies electricity to the network on behalf of Roads ACT.

Streetlight maintenance

Current streetlight maintenance objectives are focused on reducing energy consumption and maintaining public safety.

In late 2017, TCCS will enter into an Energy Performance Contract for the operation, maintenance and upgrade of the streetlight network over a seven year period. A large proportion of Canberra’s streetlight network will be upgraded to LED, significantly increasing electrical safety and improving energy efficiency.

TCCS has expanded its routine inspection program. The expanded program has commenced in high pedestrian zones including Town Centres and Group Centres.
