Electricite Du Laos (EDL) has commenced upgrading street lighting along five main roads within Vientiane Capital to ensure safer streets at night.
According to a report by EDL, the power provider is cooperating with Vientiane Capital authorities to upgrade street lighting along main roads and other roads in the Capital last week.
Existing street lighting has also been repaired on 21 roads across the Vientiane Capital, according to a report in the Vientiane Times.
The lighting upgrades are part of a grant by the Chinese government ahead of National Day celebrations on 2 December.
The grant, amounting to some Yuan 300 million, will see street light upgrades as well as renovations to the fountain at the Patuxay Monument.
The works are being completed in time for the celebration of the occasion of the 45th Lao National day.
