The lamps out of service are those that were placed just between 2017 and 2018 as part of the remodeling of the streets of the Historic Center.
Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- In several streets of the first square of the city, public lighting is deficient. After making a tour of the area, it was observed that there are around 22 lights that are not working.
What is striking is that the lamps out of service are the ones that were placed just between 2017 and 2018 as part of the remodeling of the streets of the Historic Center; Mariano Escobedo, Heriberto Frías, Ángel Flores and Carnaval are the streets that remain in the dark.
” Since they were installed, they haven’t turned on, for about three years, and they often fail, sometimes they turn on and sometimes they don’t, they have already been reported several times,” said a merchant from Ángel Flores.
He added that before they stayed to work late, but due to the lack of lighting, in addition to the fact that it gets dark earlier, they cut their work hours since the Mazatlán Center is very lonely.
” When there is light, people walk here, but right now it gets very dark and it’s even scary, he’s alone,” he added.
He also mentioned that there are very few surveillance patrols at night unless there is an event, which is when it is filled with police.
As if that were not enough, he indicated, the plants in the pots are all dry, even though they supposedly had their own irrigation system.
” All the plants dried up, it was a wasted investment .”
