The installation of streetlights along the Lamashiegu dual carriage road leading to the Tamale city Centre has greatly improved night life in the city.
Some of the streets that have street lights include the Old Cemetery Road to Bupela, Warders Canteen Junction to Sakasaka Area, the Main road from Tamale leading to Bolgatanga, the city centre road to Vittin and the Water Works Road to Choggu Roundabout.
Others are the Catholic Guest House Road to the Tamale Stadium, City Centre Road to Estates and the Fuo, Regional office and Russian bungalow roads.
In an interview, Mr. Richard Totimeh, computer supervisor of My Com Centre in Tmale aid the street lights had come to improve life at night especially for food vendors who operated at night.
He said travelers to Tamale at night would not suffer at the hands of thieves, since there were enough lights on all major roads that lead to homes and residential areas.
His main concern, howevr was how the authorities would ensure regular maintenance and the replacement of bulbs to let the facilities serve the purpose for which they were provided.
