After replacing the conventional lighting system in the temple city with LED lights, municipal officials have decided to extend the same till Auto Nagar area, on the outskirts of Tirupati.

The new project of ‘Central Lighting System’ on the Renigunta road, which was envisaged at a cost ₹1.26 crore and covers a distance of 2.1 km with 88 electric poles and 176 LED bulbs (120 watt), was inaugurated by Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu, via remote control, during his late night visit to the city on Friday.

Expressing happiness over the development, Mr. Naidu said Tirupati would witness several development activities on the lines of Visakhapatnam. MCT Commissioner C. Hari Kiran said the project was completed in two months and was implemented by Hyderabad-based Pro-Lite India.

Pending projects

Later, Mr. Naidu held a review meeting with the district administration at Padmavathi Guest House and called for expediting the pending projects in Chittoor district. With respect to the works being done to strengthen the road infrastructure, Mr. Naidu directed the officials to complete the land acquisition, particularly forest areas, for constructing national highways. “The Shantipuram-Nalagampalle stretch, which covers a distance of 37.1 km with 3.64 hectares of forest land, should be completed by December 2018, and athe works for 'Nalagampalle-Alakuppam', a stretch of 47 km with forest land spread over 19 hectares, should commence by the first week of September,” he said.

Mr. Naidu was appraised on the six-lane highways: Chittoor-Tirupati and Renigunta-Naidupeta along side the four-lane highways: Madanapalle-Piler and Piler-Tirupati.
