Solar lighting at railway crossings

ALLAHABAD: In an attempt to save electricity and promote the use of solar energy mostly in the non-electrified routes, the North Central Railway plans to install solar panels at railway crossings.
These solar panels would aid lighting at the crossings especially during the night hours. This step would promote solar energy, save money and also protect the environment.
As many as 129 level crossings (manned and unmanned) have been electrified with the help of solar panels in NCR. This includes 44 in Allahabad, 54 in Jhansi and 31 in Agra division of North Central Railway.
