A TOTAL of €44 million will be spent by Palma City Council in the maintenance and renovation of the public lighting system.
The project will affect more than 42,000 sources of light, in roads, streets, green areas, sports facilities, etc, as was explained by municipal spokesperson, Julio Martinez.
It will take four years for the council to carry out these plans, which are conceived to replace lighting sources which have become obsolete or do not meet current regulations.
The council is hoping to save around 50 per cent of the current expenditure with the renovation of lighting, as well as reducing CO2 emissions by more than 28,000 tonnes.
“It is the equivalent to planting 94,000 trees in the city,” said Martinez, who added that the plans will also improve residents’ quality of life and safety.
