CITY OF SAN FERNANDO -- At least 130 street lights were installed along a dark portion of the MacArthur Highway or the Manila North Road (MNR) here as of August 6 to safeguard motorists traveling along the busy stretch, Mayor Edwin Santiago said on Wednesday.

In a press conference shortly after his State of the City Address, Santiago said the lights were put from the area near the Greenfields Subdivision, Barangay Sindalan up to Telasbastagan, the village at the boundary of this city and Angeles City.

Santiago said that portion of the highway was "lighted up" to make it less prone to accidents involving vehicles and pedestrians.

He said that they had to trim the full-grown trees, most of which are acacias, along the highway before the installation of the lights.

Santiago said they could not put up light posts along the highway because it’s not allowed by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH). He added that the city government will work round-the-clock to ensure the safety of residents and their visitors. (Joey Pavia/Contributor)
