The lighting and environmental arrangements works at the deserted streets of Beyoğlu gave results in a short time and the doomed streets came back into life as culture, art and tourism spaces.
Beyoğlu Municipality is using the catenary system which is the highest standard and most modern lighting system in the world in lighting of streets and roads. Work done under the sparkling bright Beyoğlu Project has been ongoing approximatively for two years and 50 kilometers of roads in total have been lighted.
Mayor Ahmet Misbah Demircan’s gives an importance to the lightning systems as he establishes a strong relation between the development of the social life and trade, the enforcement of the security and the rise of the level of welfare society and lighting. On well lighted streets and roads, the number of incidents, like mugging, robbery and purse snatching are decreasing.
The catenary system, which started to be used under the sparkling Beyoğlu project, offers better lighting with less electricity. In this system, fixtures are installed every twenty meters on the tension lines mounted on the building façades. This overhead lighting system both eliminates the occupation of sidewalks by lamp posts, at the same time leading to a higher quality lighting.

The Technical Affairs Department responds as soon as possible and solve any problems occurring in the lighting of parks, gardens, squares, social facilities and municipality service buildings within the boundaries of our district.
