The City General Services Office (GSO) is currently upgrading the city’s traffic lights in two major intersections with an allocation of PP6.7 million.

Traffic lights located at the intersections of Veterans Avenue and Gov. Lim Avenue are being replaced with LED bulbs which is the latest technology as it consumes lesser electricity.

Aside from these, countdown timers will also be placed on the traffic lights so motorists will know how many seconds left till the traffic light indicates green or GO sign.

Engr. Rene Dela Cruz, GSO officer, said in an interview that “old traffic lights located at the city’s intersections are being replaced as their spare parts are already phased out and the bulbs easily get busted.

KIV marketing,  a contractor from Manila, is set to finish the project by the end of this month.

Last 2014, the city also upgraded three traffic lights at the intersections of Sta Cruz, Governor Camins, and Mayor Jaldon Sts..

At present, only the Baliwasan Chico intersection is left with old traffic lights as the intersection is being widened.

Dela Cruz said the city government is looking at other intersections such as Governor Alvarez, Nuñez Extension, where traffic may also be upgraded. — R.G. A A. Go
