COSTA RICA NEWS – The lack of an electrical connection is keeping dark 65 recently installed traffic lights at key vehicular and pedestrian crossings.

The traffic lights were installed two months ago be crews of the Ingeniería de Tránsito del Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes (MOPT). However, missing was the request for electrical power to be provided at the time of the installation.

Junior Araya, director of Ingeniería assures that the “formal request” has been made but it will take some time. The official said he hopes the traffic lights will be working in the coming weeks.

However, that may not happen as quickly. Fructuoso Garrido, distribution manager at the Compañía Nacional de Fuerza y Luz (CNFL) – power and light company told La Nacion he knows of no request. “If they tell me where they are (the traffic lights) we will act to provide a secondary power line”, said the official.

Garrido explained that typically the CNFL leaves a connection for the MOPT to use. “They connect to power of a secondary line”, said Garrido.

The installation of the 65 traffic lights were part of the 2013 budget, contracted to Titán Representaciones for an amount of ¢375 million colones.
