The Jakarta administration plans to decorate hundreds of street lights along the Ciledug-Tendean overpass in South Jakarta with Betawi ornaments.

“We will decorate 462 street lights with gigi balang decorations [wooden Betawi ornament],” said Syamsul Bakhri, public lighting department head at the Jakarta Industry and Energy Agency, as quoted by beritajakarta.com.

The decoration poles will be installed at the top and bottom of the 10.3-kilometer overpass. Construction of the hundreds of poles is under auction through the Jakarta Goods and Services Procurement Agency (BPPBJ).

Construction was expected to start in April if everything went well, Syamsul said. Meanwhile, the construction should be completed by August.

There would be 1,526 light emitting diode smart system (LED SS) lamps, of which 344 would be 200 watt capacity, 130 at 130 watts, 659 ceiling lights with 120 watt capacity and 339 spotlights, he added. (wnd/dmr)
