The much-awaited project to convert the remaining sodium vapour street lamps into LED lamps in the city has been taken up by the Trichy Corporation. The move is aimed at ensuring better illumination and energy efficiency Already, sodium vapour lamps on arterial Bharathidasan Road to LED lamps were converted a few days ago through the smart cities mission fund and the remaining work across the city is likely to be completed within the next three months.

So far, 75% of the street lights including sodium vapour and fluorescent tubelights (FTL) have been converted into LED lights. The corporation will now revamp the remaining street lights in all 65 wards at an outlay of 23.40 crore. As many as 2,529 street lights in area-based development (ABD) area and 5,735 street lights across pan city will be converted into LED. Besides, 816 new poles will be established in parts of the city including Pudukottai road connecting Trichy airport and all the cross streets of Thillai Nagar main road.


Launching the project on Bharathidasan road, the civic body replaced the existing 250-watt sodium vapour lamps in about 1.4km stretch from HPO signal till MGR statue with 120 watt LED lamps. Further, as the materials including lights, bracket (shields), poles, and cables for the LED conversion project was procured, the corporation through a private contractor has constituted a team each for four zones to expedite the conversion project. The zonal team before installation will inspect the quality of materials procured. "It is a welcome move. The civic body should survey even some of the narrow residential streets that still have high sodium vapour lamps, such lamps should also be converted," Subash Chandran, a resident of Woraiyur said.


LED conversion project has been classified into two work zones namely ABD that covers 19 wards around Rockfort and pan-city area covering the remaining 46 wards.


"Close to 10,000 lights will be converted into LED lights in the next three months. The contractor identified for the smart city project was told to expedite the work," N Ravichandran, commissioner, Trichy Corporation said. By converting all the street lights to LED, the corporation is expected to save 51.28 lakh electricity units per year.
