Heritage project delivers light installations across Broken Hill

Heritage project delivers light installations across Broken Hill
April 9, 2020

Some of Broken Hill’s key locations have been lit up over the last few days as testing begins on Australia's Heritage Perfectly Highlighted project.

The project involves permanent coloured lighting and projection installations at the Town Hall Facade, Civic Centre, Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery, Town Square, and Sturt Park.

Broken Hill Mayor Darriea Turley said the installations would add a new level of vibrancy across the city once completed advising "this lighting will ensure these key areas and buildings around our city are an attraction even at night.

"We can also use it to complement events and initiatives - I can imagine all our prominent spaces being lit up green for St Pats weekend, or in Christmas colours for the festive season.

"It will add a whole new element to the city after dark."

The project was already underway when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, and Mayor Turley said the Silver Bullet Projects team tasked with installation "had done a great job under difficult circumstances."

Mayor Turley added "It's still a work in progress, but I think it looks amazing so far.

"I look forward to the project being completed and these lights becoming a regular feature of the city once this pandemic passes and things return to normal."

The Australia's Heritage Perfectly Highlighted project is supported NSW Government through the Restart NSW Growing Local Economies Fund.
