The Sanya government has to pour about 10 million yuan each year into renovating and maintaining urban facilities damaged by human activities, reports


In recent years, urban facilities like public street lights, traffic barriers and manhole covers have been seriously damaged or stolen, which is becoming a major headache to relevant management departments.


In Sanya, there are 14,000 street lights and 110,000 lamp lights. In order to maintain and reinforce the bright cityscape, the government has to allocate 300 to 400 thousand yuan annually for the cleanliness of these street lights.


In some sections, for instance, the Second Ring Road of Sanya Bay alone, the stealing of street lights is very rampant, causing annual maintenance fees up to several hundred thousand yuan.


Meanwhile, the damage on transport facilities has been a major challenge to the transport department.


According to the transport authority, each year they monitored and found nearly several kilometers long traffic barriers damaged, loose or stolen, increasing their burden to offer protection in crossover accidents.
