Under the Safe City project in Lucknow, 100 pink booths are to be constructed for women safety in various areas of the city in the first phase. Out of this, 70 pink booths have been completed.
At the same time, 100 two-wheeler pink petrol and 10 four-wheeler pink petrol vehicles have been given to women policemen for the safety of women and girls. These pink patrols are constantly patrolling around the girls schools, colleges and markets.
Besides, pink toilets with special facilities are being constructed at 74 places in the city for women. Out of these, 18 pink toilets are ready.
Under the Safe City project, lights are being installed at the identified dark spots in the city.
