A stretch of National Highway-2 passing through Agra city, the busy MG Road and several other main roads will soon be illuminated by LED lights. The Agra Development Authority (ADA) has contracted Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) for replacement of high-pressured sodium lights with LED lamps.
There are 42,000 street lighting points in the city. Out of these 6300 are maintained by ADA. So far, LEDs have been installed at 30,000 points across the 100 municipal wards in the city. However, 12,000 points are still to be covered. Officials said that ADA is in the process of installing LEDs at 6300 points under its jurisdiction.
ADA secretary Hariram said, “6300 street light points in the city are in areas maintained by the development authority. These include a stretch of NH-2, MG Road, Yamuna side road, part of Fatehabad road, Kalindi Vihar, Taj Nagri, among others. All these areas will be illuminated with LEDs. High power LEDs will be installed at 11 major roads of the city.” Read more
