Chinese firm helps install traffic lights across Bujumbura in Burundi
A pedestrian crosses a road in Bujumbura, capital of Burundi, on Nov. 5, 2017. Traffic lights in Burundi stopped functioning due to a lack of repair mechanism less than one year after being installed in 1999. Funded by the African Development Bank, STECOL Corporation, a Chinese firm focusing on engineering and construction works, started installing traffic lights at 19 street corners across Bujumbura in May. All of the traffic lights, made in China, have been put to use since August.
