AKIPRESS.COM - Traffic lights began working in Alay district of Osh region of Kyrgyzstan for the first time since Kyrgyzstan gained sovereignty.
The traffic lights were installed in district center - Gulcho village - on the cross of main streets. Locals financed installation of traffic lights.
Traffic lights will be installed in two other intersections before the end of the year and this time will be financed from the local budget.
Gulcho village had functioning traffic lights when Kyrgyzstan was a Soviet Union republic. After collapse of the Soviet Union, the traffic lights became unfunctional.
