Kingsford Smith Drive Upgrade

Kingsford Smith Drive is a major roadway, linking the Brisbane Central Business District (CBD) to the Airport, Port of Brisbane, Northshore Hamilton and TradeCoast area. The Kingsford Smith Drive upgrade involves road widening from four to six lanes plus the inclusion of pedestrian and cycle paths plus public spaces.

Digilin RGB Taipans were selected for installation into the river side railings, to provide a colour mixing point source illuminator, viewable by all using the river and on the opposite bank. The Taipan required some custom mountings including a threaded head for locking into the fabricated railings along the foreshore.

Constructed from marine grade 316 stainless steel, and factory sealed to IP68 in our Brisbane facility, the Taipan has been in production since the early 2000s. Over this period, the Taipan has been deployed on hundreds of projects in Australia and internationally due to its sturdy construction and reliable performance. The RGB Taipans are driven by Digilin’s new generation RDM/DMX constant current drivers.

Digilin’s HaloFlex flexible LED system was also deployed for illumination of public seating areas and landscape features. These systems were manufactured by Digilin to required project lengths for easy installation

Digilin thanks the team at Design Stage for selecting the Taipan, and congratulates LendLease for the successful installation of these systems. It is certainly exciting for Digilin to have our engineering and production capabilities on display so close to home.
