progressing fast

KHULNA: Setting up of solar LED and non LED light over 58.8 kilometres roads at the City Corporation (KCC) is progressing fast, reports BSS. A total of 77 solar LED and 2, 729 non LED light and 1947 electricity polls are being set up in the city corporation area, said an official of KCC.

He said already 700 electricity polls have been set up in the city in last month. The KCC authority has taken the project involving Taka 22 crore in cooperation with Asian Development Bank (ADB) last year.

Executive Engineer of KCC (Electricity) Zahid Hossain Sheikh told BSS that KCC has taken the Solar LED project instead of sodium light as the latter is very expensive.

The environment friendly light will save electricity bill, he said, adding the bulbs also help curb crimes including mugging, robbery, stealing and road accident in the city.
