FRSC Begins Relocation Of Markets On High Ways In Taraba


Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Taraba State, Corps Selina Williams on Wednesday supervised the relocation of markets on the busy Jalingo- Iware high way and distribution of the corps’  customized metal traffic and safety barricades.
Williams noted at the event that the move was part of FRSC’s concerted effort towards ensuring that highways were safe for road users by taking the markets to other locations.
According to her, the enforcement was aimed at eradicating all relative incidences of road traffic infractions and their  attendant consequences such as traffic gridlocks and road traffic crashes which posed a major public health and socio-economic concerns in Nigeria.
“To achieve this arduous task, the command synergized with the Nigeria Police Force (NPF)  and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in the state as well as other grassroot relevant stakeholders.
“We hope to achieve the desired results and subsequently dissuade communities from  building markets close to the highways in order to curb the menace of road traffic crashes within the state,” she said.
 Many small markets across Taraba normally  hold on the high ways, thereby causing traffic gridlocks on markets days.
