At least 40-million budget will be designated annually for street lighting in this historical capital city, the local engineering office announced.
City Engineer Christian Mervin Sarno said that the inner barangay (village) main road street lighting is one of the projects under the local administration’s modernization program.
The newest addition to the list of finished LED-street lighting project was the stretch from Barangay Luma and Medicion. Ongoing are some streets in Barangays Anabu and Alapan.
Sarno said that the more powerful and cost-saving street lighting project was made possible by officials led by Mayor Emmanuel Leonardo Maliksi.
The project will prevent road accidents involving vehicles and pedestrians, deter crimes and for residents to have bright streets to walk on freely and happy. First among the areas are the bustling roads of Nueno, Poblacion, Bucandala, Malagasang, Open Canal, Carsadang Pasong Buaya II, and nearby areas. (Anthony Giron)
