Noida: The Noida authority on Tuesday asked officials to ensure proper lighting facilities on all key roads, including the Yamuna Expressway, which has seen a number of fatal accidents ever since it was opened for public.
    
After a review meeting here on Tuesday, CEO Sanjiv Saran asked the officials to repair all defunct street lights on the expressway, and directed the power department officials to ensure regular supply for them.
    
Saran also asked the officials to take up repair work of damaged roads in the wake of increasing traffic pressure, especially on the DND Flyway and the Noida-Greater Noida
stretch of the expressway.
    
The move assumes significance after a number of people died due to a series of road accidents on the highway, particularly on the Noida-Greater Noida stretch.
    
On Sunday, two persons were killed on the expressway after their truck was hit by a speeding truck.     

Residents also had approached the authority, complaining that lack of lighting was giving rise to anti-social activities.
