Over 9,000 lights are installed on 238 streets in Atyrau as part of a joint project between the EDB and Batys Transit

05 April 2021

Nur-Sultan, 5 April 2021. The Eurasian Development Bank (EDB) and Batys Transit have implemented their joint public-private partnership (PPP) projects. In particular, the project to construct street lighting systems in Atyrau (Phases 2 and 3) has been completed. Financing was provided by the EDB and totalled KZT 8 billion. The PPP facilities have been commissioned and handed over to the public partner.

A total of 242,620 metres of lighting was built on 238 streets and one highway (Atyrau–Aktobe) under two projects.

The project has optimised electricity consumption and network maintenance through the implementation of an integrated Automated Outdoor Lighting Control System for efficient and economical management, control and diagnostics of street lighting (dimming), and the use of high-quality lamps from a world-class manufacturer.

New streetlights have also been built on the streets that had not had street lighting before. The projects are expected to reduce the number of accidents and crimes on roads and in pedestrian areas.

“Batys Transit is one of the Bank’s key clients, with whom we have built a long-standing partnership based on the effective cooperation between our teams. This is proven by the successful commissioning of the street lighting projects despite the rather strict lockdowns in many regions since the beginning of 2020. The EDB and the company are currently discussing further cooperation and new projects,” said Amangeldy Issenov, Deputy Chairman of the EDB Management Board.
