All of this will introduce the first LED zebra crossing in the Kanter area.
The technology will be powered by solar energy and will be used first at the Gandhi Bagh crossing, if all goes well, it will be used at all nine intersections of shopping center Road as well as other major intersections in the Kanter area.
MCB officials claim solar energy
The electric LED zebra crossing will also be one of the first zebra crossings in the country.
To develop the Kanter region into a "smart Kanter", MCB officials said they would launch several such innovations to improve the infrastructure and quality of life of the residents.
After the beautification of Gandhi Bagh, we will now turn all the intersections into LED zebra crossings.
This project is in the experimental stage and we chose Gandhi Bagh as the beginning.
Once the LED display is installed and started to work, we will monitor it for 15 days.
If we succeed in this project, the next stage will see all nine intersections on the Mall Road transformed into this one.
We will then be dealing with other major crossing points in the Kante area, as Piyush Gautam, assistant engineer, told TOI.
MCB employs Aaditya Renewable, a company that works in Renewable energy.
This will cost between Rs 2, according to the source.
Develop normal zebra crossings into LED zebra crossings.
The solar panels will be installed on the sidewalk instead of hanging on the iron rack, gaotam said.
In order to light the intersection, a power supply of 650 watts is required, and a panel will be set up to generate 1 KW of the power at the same time.
Solar panels will be placed on the sidewalk.
If we install the frame for the panel, the cost will rise further, he added.
The intersection will be made of a polycarbonate sheet and a waterproof LED light will be placed around it.
Officials say it will be run by an automated Twilight to Dawn operator.
