Nakuru - Nakuru Executive for Roads, Joel Maina has said that his ministry has installed 13 high mast solar powered streetlights in Central Business District Area of Nakuru town.
He said that the installation of the new streetlights in the CBD will help reduce cases of insecurity in the town, and help traders to operate safely until late at night.
“So far, we have been able to install new streetlights in the CBD of Nakuru town and this will greatly help traders to operate well late at night,” he said.
The executive for roads said that the new streetlights are able to cover wider range areas compared to the old ones.
Speaking on Monday in Nakuru town during the inspection of the projects, Maina said that his ministry through the county government is in the process of acquiring more streetlights for other sub-counties.
“The advantage of these streetlights is that they can cover wide areas and so far we have placed another order for more to be brought in,” he revealed.
