We will talk to them and see what needs to be done.” However, LMRC public relation officer, Pushpa Belani said, “We will talk to LMC officials about it.
In a reality check on Thursday, TOI found no streetlights except the areas under elevated Metro stations.
LUCKNOW: The road under the Metro elevated stretch from CCS airport to Munshipulia is engulfed in darkness due to absence of streetlights that were removed during North-South Metro corridor construction but have not been restored.While local residents and commuters complain about various problems due to absence of streetlights, Lucknow Municipal Corporation (LMC) and Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) passed the buck to each other.
However, the stretches without shops were totally dark.Rajat Shukla, a resident of Kapoorthala, was injured last week on a dark stretch.
It is not our responsibility to provide streetlights.”(With inputs from Vivek Singh Chauhan and Shruti Nanda)
