Akure—THE Federal Government has approved the establishment of a standard transit park by the Ondo state government in Ore town.
With the establishment of the park, indiscriminate parking of trucks and luxurious buses will henceforth become a traffic offense.
To give a bite to this, the Ondo state government has assigned a magistrate court to try violators.
Speaking with Vanguard in Akure, the Special Adviser to the governor on Transportation, Mr. Tobi Ogunleye said that the park would accommodate 200 trucks.
Ogunleye pointed out that the establishment of the park will be in partnership with other investors.
He said: “We want to enforce a decent parking arrangement of luxurious and trucks in Ore Sunshine city transit park. We want to keep out roads clean of debris. No more garbage of trucks along Lagos, Benin/ Ore expressway.
“Owners of abandoned trucks should ensure their removal to allow free flow of movement.
“Henceforth there would be no more indiscriminate parking in Ore by truck and luxurious drivers for the safety of the road users.
