Tackling Traffic Congestion along Edinburgh and P&T Quarters in Enugu

Written By Nwaorgu Faustinus

In the history of mankind, developments do herald positive and negative challenges which often times may be temporary or otherwise. But in this case, it is the challenge, or rather, traffic congestion, that has become a daily occurrence along the top five areas of traffic congestion.

While some observers attribute the congestion to the on-going dual carriageway bridge project at the tail end of the above mentioned places, others are of the contrary view that the more than two lines some impatient road users, especially motorists, form while coming from Edinburgh Bus Stop en route to Holy Ghost and vice versa, is the problem.

It is a well-known fact that some motorists, in their haste and impatience to get to their destination, do contribute a great deal to the traffic gridlock that is now an everyday experience along the axis. Another is the long vehicle used in bringing building materials to the site of the construction as other road users must wait until the vehicle enters the construction park where its content will be offloaded at very slow rate, thereby making road users to grow impatient.

It therefore behooves the state government, led by the indefatigable Chief Executive, Sullivan Chime, to draft policemen, road safety officers, or civil defence officers to Edinburgh Bus Stop and P&T Quarters to control traffic and instill discipline in motorists who create or form more than one line which constitutes part of the difficulty being experienced by road users. The state government should ensure that those mandated to carry out this responsibility get to their duty posts as early as 7am to 11am and from 5pm to 8pm because these are the time frames traffic congestion is at its peak along the axis.

It is when this is done that the teething traffic jam being experienced on a daily basis will be curtailed or even nipped in the bud. God Bless Enugu State
