BEST on Tuesday replaced more than 1,000 low street lights with LED bulbs on an urgent basis across the city, replacing those which were non-functional.
Areas which faced a problem included parts of Matunga, Dadar, Sion, King’s Circle and Mahim. The inconvenience that the people face and the risk that is put on the women travelling alone, was the reason for this noble activity.
Citizens had collectively filed a complaint about the issue to the officials in the Dadar TT area regarding the street lights not working. It was found that there was an acute shortage of 70W bulbs. Therefore an immediate action was taken and the bulbs were replaced with LED lights. But at the same time nearly 250 such complaints are still pending.
