Mayor Atiqul said they would install 46,410 LED lights instead of 42,000 as budgeted but the cost will remain the same.
“It’s unprecedented. Each light will have a life cycle of 22 years. They’ve been brought from Europe. Buet tests have confirmed that these lights are completely safe for the eyes and are environment-friendly,” he said.
“We’ll work from our respective positions to make Dhaka a beautiful and livable city. Our prime minister is determined to fulfill the dream of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman,” he said.
“We’ll be able to turn Bangladesh into a developed country if we work from our respective positions,” the minister said.
