Vic Falls installs solar street lights

By Judith Sibanda

Victoria Falls City Council (VFCC) is embarking on a programme to install solar street lights in its suburbs to ensure the safety of residents and tourists, the authority’s public relations department has said.

In a public circular, the city said the ongoing project is inspired by modern cost-effective technology.

“The City of Victoria Falls wishes to inform its stakeholders and residents that there is an ongoing installation of Solar Street lights across the town,” the memo read.

“This is part of Council’s commitment to make the destination safe and accessible at night to residents and visitors through smart and efficient technologies.”

Meanwhile, the authority has urged drivers and pedestrians to exercise caution.

“During installation period there is going to be trenching along the City’s road network,” they warned.

“You are therefore advised to exercise caution when driving or walking along the roads.”

The local authority urged residents and relevant stakeholders to protect the public infrastructure.  

“The development serves to benefit the community of Victoria Falls and its visitors; hence, members of the public are encouraged to help the Local Authority in selfishly guarding the infrastructure and reporting any form of vandalism to the authorities,” council said.
