Mahadevapura zone will sport a brighter look as more than 9,000 LED streetlights will be installed.
Story so far: Residents have complained that the roads have been in bad condition for years. Without proper streetlights, it has become a nightmare for commuters. Despite complaining to the authorities, nothing was done. The BBMP previously tried to begin installing LED lights many times but failed to. While it was budgeted for, the agency assigned didn’t do anything.
- The BBMP will install LED lights in the streets along Alpine Eco Road, Gear School Road, and Sarjapur Road. The process began last week.
- It’ll include 23 high-mast lights that will help illuminate large areas from a specific height, usually on poles as tall as 40 to 50 feet. Each pole will have 16 fixtures.
Timeline: The project will be completed in the next three months. The power supply will be provided by BESCOM. For residents and commuters, the streetlights are a relief, not just for travel but for personal security too.
