Byo urges motorists, public to acquaint with new international road signs


THE Bulawayo City Council has urged motorists and the public to exercise caution and acquaint themselves with the new internationally-recognised road signs introduced in the city on Monday, as part of measures to reduce road carnage.

The new road signage, which was introduced in line with Statutory Instrument 41 of 2016, was part of the city’s goals towards providing basic services to the residents.

“One of the city’s primary goals is to provide adequate housing, roads, water, wastewater infrastructure and other basic services to its residents,” council spokesperson, Nesisa Mpofu said.

“The installation of the road signs will see the replacement of street furniture, which is now old and dilapidated due to lack of periodic maintenance as a result of cash flow problems associated with the past.

“Modern technologically and advanced luminous signs have been developed and they are visible to road users during the day and at night, as they show a quality of retro-reflectivity and are more durable.”

Mpofu also encouraged residents to desist from destroying municipal property.

“The City of Bulawayo would like to urge members of the public to desist from vandalising and breaking down of the signs. Vandalism of municipal infrastructure is a chargeable offence,” she added.
