Warren Park residents have hailed government over the construction of a roundabout to ease traffic congestion at the intersection.

 

 

The construction is being done under the Emergency Roads Rehabilitation Program (ERRP).

 

In an interview with Sly Media, residents and motorists expressed satisfaction as this will curb road accidents and congestion during peak hours.

 

 

” I am happy about this development because at this roundabout it has now become the hotspot of accidents because the roundabout has become smaller.

“This roundabout is going to be of use to motorist mostly us from Kuwadzana side because we will be saying goodbye to congestion,” Simon Mbeu said.

 

 

Another man who identify himself as Josphat said that he is happy about this development because some of the cars are using streets roads putting the lives of pedestrians at risk.

” As a resident of Warren Park, I am happy about this development since we are worried about our children’s safety since most of the cars from Whitehouse and Kuwadzana are now using some of the street roads due to congestion in the morning, “he said.

 

” This is the greatest development and it is helpful to people like me who usually travel on daily basis to work in the CBD because we can be able to reach work at the right time,” said Rudo Shambare.

“Surely this is what I call development because at this roundabout accident where happening on daily basis because there were no sign posts due to vandalism but the government replaced those sign posts for motorist to drive safe.,” said Shepherd Shamba.

 

” Congestion becomes high because there was no sign posts to know which car has to go first or what due to vandalism but for the safety of people sign posts were replaced,”

 

Over 2 000km of roads have been re-gravelled, while 6 627,9km have been graded with 701 drainage structures constructed or repaired and 184 wash-ways reclaimed.

 

Across the country, 4 491,5km of drains have been opened while 6 141,2km of verges have been cleared, with progress continuing to be made on the patching of potholes with a cumulative of 4 794,8km having been attended to.
