The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has decided to illuminate the city’s roads light emitting diodes (LED). Initially, 2,000 LED lights would be installed at major avenues of the capital.
This was decided during a meeting chaired by CDA Chairman Maroof Afzal at its headquarters.
The chairman was briefed that LED technology is not only cost-effective but will also help lit the city more aesthetically. The meeting was further informed that LEDs are more durable and long lasting when compared to conventional streetlights.
He was informed that initially lights will be installed on the main Murree Road from Faizabad to Serena Hotel Chowk, Constitution Avenue, F-6, F-7 and F-8 portion of Nazimuddin Road and Faisal Avenue from Zero Point in phases.
The meeting was informed that the replaced conventional lights would be converted into retrofitted LEDs and would be installed later in other areas of the city.
A successful experience of installing retrofitted LEDs has been carried out at Margalla Road.
