All LED street lights in PJ within three years

MBPJ is carrying out LED street light upgrading work at Lorong Utara Kecil, near the Astaka Sports Complex.

Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) is upgrading street lights in the city to LED lighting.

Among the advantages of LED lighting are that it is energy-saving, has a long lifespan and increases road users’ safety.

In a statement, MBPJ said the number of street lights under its maintenance schedule until 2021 was 16,867 units.

So far 9,953 light units have been replaced with LED lamps.

MBPJ aims to upgrade 1,760 street light units to LED by the end of the year.

“This means the remaining street lights that have not been upgraded by the beginning of 2023 is 5,154, which is equivalent to 31% of lights.“MBPJ expects to have 100% LED street lights in less than three years, according to the allocation received via the city council, the Malaysian Road Records Information System (Marris) and the Safe City Programme,” the statement said.

The MBPJ Engineering Department will also focus on replacing the lamps to the LED type and carry out minor repair work, according to site requirements, to improve their illumination.

LED upgrading work along Lorong Utara Kecil near Astaka Sports Complex is expected to be completed by May 31.

At the same time, LED lighting upgrading work is also underway at Taman Tasik Komuniti Kelana Jaya. This project is also expected to be completed by the end of this month.

Other areas that will be upgraded to LED lighting include Jalan 17/21, Jalan 5/46 and Jalan Cempaka; Persiaran Meranti, Persiaran Margosa, Persiaran Industri, Jalan PJU 7/1, Jalan PJU 7/7 and Jalan PJU 7/15; Jalan PJS1/15, Jalan Sri Manja, Jalan PJS 1/35, Jalan PJS 1/50 and Jalan PJS 1/52; Jalan PJU 1A/29, Jalan PJU 1A/29A, Jalan PJU 1A/29B and Jalan PJU 1A/29C.
