News: Streetlights defunct, leading to crashes after dark in Sector 109, say residents-29-08-2021


Gurgaon: Streetlights lying defunct in Sector 109 due to a lack of maintenance have become a cause of concern for residents in the area. They claimed to have made several complaints but in vain. The authorities keep passing the buck instead of resolving the issue, they alleged .
The residents have complained that the master road, as well as the internal sector road, are poorly lit, which makes the area prone to accidents. One such stretch — between ATS Kocoon and Dwarka Expressway intersection — the streetlights have been lying defunct for over two years.
Manoj Tiwari, a Brisk Lumbini resident, said: “The residents are living with a sense of fear in the absence of proper illumination on the roads. We have hardly seen streetlights working on this stretch, which caters to several residential societies and schools. They need to be immediately fixed so that the streets are safer for pedestrians and motorists.”

The developers who have been maintaining the streetlights and bearing the electricity cost have shunned the responsibility after the area came under the ambit of MCG, a resident said.

Nirmal Daga, a Caladium resident, said: “No civic authority is willing to take up the responsibility. Since our area now falls under MCG limits, the developers who were maintaining the streetlights, are no longer doing it citing that it’s not their responsibility.”

Over 3,000 families are living in the area.

A senior official of the MCG said, “The internal sector road is yet to be taken over by the MCG to initiate any repair work or replacement of streetlights. If the streetlights were installed by the developer, it is their responsibility to maintain them till the civic authorities take over the assets,” said an official.

Meanwhile, a senior HSVP official said the streetlights on the master road are functional and “if any of them are not working then I will get them checked and repaired soon”.
