Multipole has secured a contract with a consortium of Sydney Councils including Inner West Council, Cumberland Council, Burwood Council, Strathfield Council, Canada Bay Council and City of Parramatta to supply multi-function smart poles for the Government’s $198 million upgrades planned for Parramatta Road.

The project is part of the NSW Government’s 30-year plan spanning several Sydney council areas including Inner West, Cumberland, Burwood, Strathfield, Canada Bay and Parramatta Council areas and is a major road transport corridor connecting the CBD with Parramatta.

Multipole, part of the Goldspar Group, has been manufacturing and supplying smart city solutions across Australia and overseas including the United Arab Emirates and North America, for 40 years and was the original designer of the smart pole.

“We look forward to working with the councils involved in delivering a consistent, future-proof lighting and smart pole design along the Parramatta Road corridor,” Goldspar Australia Executive Manager Anthony Hayman said.

“The award of this contract follows on from the company’s success in supplying smart poles for award-winning projects in Western Australian like Rockingham Foreshore and Elizabeth Quay as well as South Eveleigh in Sydney and Australian National University”, he added.
