Gilbert Tsimi Evouna, the government delegate to the Yaoundé City Council (YCC), closed on May 16 the reception of offers for the illumination of the capital of Cameroon, during the end of year festivities.
The market launched in early May is divided into two lots. The first, amounting to 170 million FCFA, concerns the illumination of 27 places. These include the Ahmadou Ahidjo Square and its ramps, the Poste centrale to the Charles Atangana monument, Place de l’Independance, Bois Saint-Anastasie, the le carrefour Intendance, the Boulevard des Cinquantenaires in Omnisport, the Mvan roundabout, etc.
The second lot, costing 150 million CFA francs, includes 25 peripheral areas of the city center of Yaoundé, including the Oyomabang roundabout, the Mont-Febe road, Jean-Paul II boulevard, Rond-point express in Biyem-Assi, the Unity Palace roundabout, the Boulevard de l’Indépendance – the EMIA and CHU roundabouts, the Flamenco roundabout, etc.
The illumination of the city of Yaoundé will operate between December 5, 2017 and January 15, 2018. That is 41 days.
The companies that will eventually be selected by the City Council will make the connections of the illumination installations on the electrical network of the Eneo Cameroon company, including the installation of meters and the starting of the equipment.
