"Switching on Darwin" aims to improve council service delivery and lift city liveability

The Northern Territory’s capital has launched a $10 million blueprint in a bid to improve council’s service delivery and lift the city’s liveability.

The plan would see council roll out a range of smart technologies across the city by May this year, including a smart city platform, sensors for vehicle and pedestrian movement and smart parking technology.

The strategy, Switching on Darwin, also includes the launch of a micro-climate monitoring system, upgrades to the city’s CCTV, an extension of the WI-FI network and upgrades to street lights that will see a 50 per cent reduction in energy consumption.
