SINCE early April, a project to install new lamp posts around the famous Mandalay moat has been implemented by Mandalay City Development Committee, one of its members said.
With the aim of decreasing criminal activity and preventing crimes by focusing on lowering potential opportunities, city authorities target to put around 150 LED light bulbs at 75 lump posts along 66th, 12th and 26th streets, and the eastern part of the moat.
In collaboration with Mandalay Region Electricity Supply Cooperation, the MCDC puts forth concerted efforts to place new concrete lamp posts on 66th Street and between 12th and 26th streets before the Thingyan New Year Water Festival.
A lamp post will cover two 115-watt LED light bulbs.
In addition, the corporation will replace the old electric wire ropes installed around the moat with quality high-voltage wire.
Authorities also installed lamp posts along the roads in the capital Nay Pyi Taw.
