Dwarka: Eerie darkness and gloomy streets have become a new normal on several lanes in Dwarka. One of the badly lit roads of Dwarka is the road in front of the Saral Apartment to Dav Public School. The whole lane remains dark during the night in Sector 10, Dwarka.
When CitySpidey visited the area, the street lights were not working properly and the whole lane was dark. The installation of street lights serves no purpose if all of them are dysfunctional.
Shilpa Singh, a resident of Sector 10, Dwarka, said, “This is an important road and in the absence of functioning street lights, people are put to great inconvenience.”
Senior citizens and women, in particular, are the worst sufferers and face the risk of getting knocked down by motorists. People, not being able to see the road clearly for potholes etc. can get hurt.
A resident of Saral Apartments, Urmila Malik, complained, “Residents have written to the authority, but no action has been taken has been done yet.”
Vijay Dagar, a commuter said, “Issue is that most of the street lights are covered with tree branches which need to be trimmed regularly.”
Dwarka residents must follow this procedure to complaint about the issue of streetlights:
The streetlight's pole photo with a number (painted yellow), location landmark & complete address should be reported to:
