UPDATE ON OIC PROGRESS: The Gambia OIC Secretariat is pleased to announce that the installation of street lights on the dual carriageway road with six lanes has begun as work on the Bertil Harding Highway continues.
The following are the specifics:
The contractors have completed 1.5 kilometers of street lighting installation, which is ongoing.

The street lights are powered by solar energy.
Each streetlight has two lights, and they illuminate the entire highway’s carriageway.
A significant development is the installation of cutting-edge solar-powered streetlights on The Bertil Harding Highway. Each light pole has solar panels that convert solar energy into electrical energy that is stored in a built-in battery and can be used for lighting from dusk to dawn.
Benefits of solar-powered lights include their resistance to water, weatherproofing, low glare, and optimal battery management systems that support motion for convenience and durability.
As we continue to carry out projects for National Development, the Secretariat and the stakeholders it serves are looking for the public’s support and cooperation.
