Smart Cities

Smart Social Spaces Project

Memorial Square Hurstville and Olds Park Mortdale are the chosen locations for the Smart Cities - Smart Social Spaces Project, a joint initiative by the University of NSW and Georges River Council.

The project, which is funded as part of the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet’s Smart Cities and Suburbs Program, will see UNSW’s Built Environment Team research and investigate how technology can be used to activate public spaces and better connect them with the community.

Both sites will see the installation of new street furniture and healthy living hardware designed to improve healthy and connected living. The project will inform the development of a smart, infrastructure management system that can be utilised by Councils throughout Australia.    

The project will run from 14 May 2018 until June 2019.
