The Aurangabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) has installed streetlights on Seven Hills flyover.
A total of 66 electric poles (33 on each side and separated by distance of 20 feet each) have been installed by spending Rs 50 lakh. Electrical work was completed under the supervision of BoT chief Syed Sikander Ali and deputy engineer P R Bansode.
As reported earlier, absence of streetlights on the longest flyover in the city was causing inconvenience to the vehicle riders and drivers while driving at night.
The issue had been raised in the general body and standing committee meetings. Two months ago, the AMC officials were directed to install lights immediately. The flyover was constructed by the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) which had also installed electric poles. A couple of poles fell on the road beneath the flyover as their base rusted. Sensing danger, all the poles were removed and the Aurangabad Municipal Corporation was handed over the task of installing the new poles in 2012.
The civic body shortlisted Bajaj company to provide LED lights similar to those fixed on the Sealink Project (Worli, Mumbai).
