Cranbourne is nestled in the heart of Victoria's biggest growth corridor in the south east and is home to a large horse population and racing community. Cranbourne Racecourse is already regarded as a premier, world-class country racing facility which makes the track an ideal venue for the expansion of Victoria’s night racing program. As a second night racing venue, Cranbourne will complement the existing Moonee Valley night program in delivering more racing into an increasingly popular wagering and attendance timeslot on Friday nights. The installation will allow the venue to host as many as fifteen night race meetings in the upcoming racing year thus ensuring that local trainers will have access to the best facilities. This includes more than 130 trainers who regularly take up to 750 horses through their paces at the track.
The Cranbourne racing precinct is regarded as a major source of employment and economic activity, directly generating around 750 ongoing jobs. Local MPs have already stated that the new lighting at Cranbourne will not only provide a boost to the local and state-wide racing industry, but it will provide even more employment opportunities and economic benefits for Cranbourne and surrounding communities.
The lighting solution created by Sylvania Lighting includes the installation of thirty-eight lighting towers and use state-of-the-art lamps, lamp control and dimming technology. This allows the track to be lit to the required standard for television broadcasting with the flexibility for lights to be dimmed during non-broadcasted times. The project draws on the company’s expertise in designing effective lighting solutions for outdoor sporting and entertainment venues with an emphasis on ensuring that the installation achieves optimal efficiencies in energy consumption.
