LED light­ing work on Outer Ring Road in Hy­der­abad to be com­pleted soon

Electronics Bazaar - - Led News -

In­stal­la­tion of LED lights from Gachi­bowli to Shamshabad on the Outer Ring Road (ORR) in Hy­der­abad, for bet­ter il­lu­mi­na­tion and as a means to re­duce ac­ci­dents, will be com­pleted soon.

Hy­der­abad Growth Cor­ri­dor Lim­ited (HGCL) of Hy­der­abad Metropolitan De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity (HMDA) is tak­ing up the ` 300 mil­lion project, which has been

funded by Ja­pan In­ter­na­tional Co­op­er­a­tion Agency (JICA).

Work on the 24.38 kilo­me­tre main car­riage­way from Gachi­bowli to Shamshabad is un­der­way and, once com­pleted, it will be the first ex­press­way in the state to have LED light­ing. HGCL has roped in Philips In­dia Lim­ited for this project, and au­thor­i­ties said the ini­tia­tive to in­stall LED lights will help in slash­ing the power bills by about 50 per cent. Be­sides work­ing on this project, Philips will also be re­spon­si­ble for op­er­a­tions and main­te­nance for five years.

The 24.38 kilo­me­tre stretch will be equipped with nearly 5,000 LED lights, out of which close to 1,800 lights will be in­stalled on the main car­riage­way, about 2,300 on the service roads, and the rest on the up­per and lower ramps.
