The NSW Public Lighting Code (140kb PDF), first published January 2006, is being updated to support service standards and make it consistent with National Electricity Law and changes to the role of distribution networks.

Changes to Code are intended to:

  • Support improvements to road safety and visual amenity
  • Provide greater certainty of obligations and service levels
  • Ensure that implementation of, and compliance with, the Code is practical.

Interested parties are invited to provide written feedback or commentary on the updated Code by June 8, 2018.
