New Year’s lights: Belgrade will “light up” less and shorter
New Year’s lights in Belgrade, which started to be installed these days, will be “hung” in 65 locations, in significantly fewer places than in previous years.
Due to the current energy situation, the capital will “light up” this winter until January 15, 2023writes Politika.
Striving to optimize and unhindered functioning in the public lighting sector on the territory of the city by engaging technical and human capacities in a timely manner, it is expected that the equipment installation works will be completed by December 15, when the installation will be successively switched on.
During the execution of works in the zones of the planned activities, it is possible that there will be a sporadic slowdown of pedestrian and motor traffic, and fellow citizens are asked for patience, announced from Public Lighting.
In previous years, the New Year illumination of the city lasted from December to February. Decorating the city started in September, even before the official start of autumn. The New Year’s lights “lit up” from the beginning of December until February 15, that is, it would be turned off a day or two after the celebration of the Meeting.
New Year’s decorations were placed in more than 100 locations, in almost all municipalities, and the monthly costs of such lighting amounted to around 5,000 euros.
The procurement of New Year’s decorations, tenders with the Kip Light company, and especially Christmas trees in 2017, the price of which was 83,000 euros, were the subject of sharp confrontation between the position and the opposition.
