New lights at crossings
Two pedestrian crossings, one by the polyclinic and the other by the research building in the U. S. Steel Kosice Public Access Area, were provided with
halogen lighting last week. The lights are part of the safety project named Pedestrian Crossing Lighting, and so far these are prototypes of a new form of illumination designed specifically to
improve the lighting of pedestrian crossings. The conception and implementation of this project have been the joint task of the Department for Dedicated Technological Equipment Safety and the
Metallurgical Plant Electrical Repairs Unit of the Repair Division. The decision to install further lighting will be made by the people in charge after evaluation of experience from the operation
of the prototypes.
Saca school to be a further Center for Specialist Education
The new school year 2009/2010 will see three Centers for Specialist Education functioning in Kosice. One of them will be the Secondary Specialist School in
Kosice-Saca (formerly the Metallurgical Vocational School), which has been preparing students for selected steelmaking professions in cooperation with U. S. Steel Kosice for several
years now. The school will thus become the regional center for specialist education serving the needs of particular branches of the steelmaking industry. In addition to the Saca school there will
be Centers for Specialist Education in construction engineering at the Kukucinova Street Specialist School, and in network technologies and informatics at the Ostrovského Street Technical
Specialist School in Kosice.
