The County government of Mombasa has imposed a temporary restriction on heavy goods vehicles from usage of busy roads during this festive season.
In a special gazette notice, Transport, Infrastructure and Public Works Executive Officer Taufiq Balala halted heavy commercial vehicles from plying roads within northern Mainland and Central Business District (CDB) areas.
Balala restricted the movement of heavy goods vehicles in the roads within the two busy areas between 6:00am to 9: 30am and 4:00pm to 8:00pm until January 6, 2022.
Vehicles with 10 tonnes have been restricted from using Nyali road, Fidel Odinga road, Links road, New Malindi- Mombasa Road within northern Mainland areas.
The CBD roads include Digo road, Moi Avenue, Nkurumah and Nyerere Avenues.
The temporary restrictions have been necessitated by an influx of motorists and visitors trooping into the Coastal County to spend Christmas and New Year festive season.
The measure is also geared towards reducing cases of accidents with the county government deploying its traffic marshals in strategic roads to control movement of the vehicles.
