Mogadishu to Get First Traffic Lights in 20 Years

No functional traffic lights currently in the capital


Traffic lights are coming to Mogadishu for the first time in more than 20 years.

The Somali capital currently has no traffic lights at all, but the municipal government plans to start installing solar-powered ones at 54 intersections in October. For the time being, police officers have to direct cars and other vehicles at busy street crossings.
