KATHMANDU, April 11: The government has put forward a plan to illuminate major cities of the country, including the Kathmandu Valley. As part of this initiative, plans are underway to install modern street lights along the main city streets. Additionally, modern traffic lights will be installed along busy roadways.

KATHMANDU, Feb 5: Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) has installed 1,026 smart 'street lights' at various places in the capital city.

KATHMANDU, Oct 9: Disputes between the Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) and the local governments regarding street light tariff and land use have erupted again. According to the NEA, by the end of June of the fiscal year 2022/23, the tariff for electricity used by local governments for purposes such as street lights has reached a whopping Rs 6.0894 billion but the local governments have been dilly-dallying to pay the fee.

There are many cases of accidents highly influenced by poor visibility resulting in a collision of vehicles with other vehicles, stray animals, early morning joggers, pedestrians crossing the road, and homeless people napping on the side of the road.

KATHMANDU, June 30: A tussle between Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) and local level units regarding use of land and payment for street lights has left electricity dues worth six billion in quandary.
