An attempt to expose the state of lighting in our streets. Our streets are not illuminated, making it unsafe for you as a pedestrian, cyclist, motorist, and commuter. Covered here are 1200 streetlights along a 15 km stretch of Outer Ring Road. Scroll down to see it yourself
This stretch has several large apartments, large supermarkets and shops. Only 33% of streetlights are lit in the evening. The darkest spots are along the service roads, a serious risk to safety as these roads are used bi-directionally.
Home to 10 techparks, a college, a hospital, a mall, and several apartments. Flyovers are the worst lit, with one in complete darkness. Less than 20% of this stretch is lit.
Probably the brightest stretch with a score of 55%.
Most of the road along the Agara Lake is completely neglected and is in complete darkness. Driving at night is worsened due to poor state of roads.
The road connecting HSR BDA junction till Silk Board has < 42% of streetlights lit.
