St. Petersburg to Be Illuminated for 300th Anniversary

In celebration of the city's 300th anniversary there are plans to illuminate 163 monuments, all the city's triumphal arches, 24 bridges, 12 hotels as well as replace 60 thousand street lamps. This was announced to a Rosbalt correspondent by the press office of the Lensvet state lighting agency. Work is currently under way to improve the lighting on Palace Square including the construction of new illuminating poles and the illumination of all the buildings leading onto the square. This work should be completed in April 2003. Lensvet specialists are also preparing to reconstruct the lighting systems on Pulkovo Highway and Kamennoostrovsky Prospect.

In 2002 Lensvet completed most of the reconstruction work on the lighting system of Sennaya Square. Moreover, more than 150 streets and districts had new lighting systems set up including the Palace, Admiralty and Kutuzovsky Embankments.
