Study underway on lights in Container Road: Nitin Gadkari

A detailed study is underway to install lights in the 16-km-long Container Road, Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari has said, in a letter addressed to Hibi Eden, MP.

Mr. Eden had raised the demand for street lights on the accident-prone corridor that is part of the national highway network, and is owned by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), at a meeting of MPs that the Union Minister had convened. The provision for street lights will be included in the toll collection agreement of the stretch.

Accidents and crimes are reported along the stretch that is used by passenger vehicles and goods carriers.
