Anambra upgrades two more motor parks

AS PART of on-going effort to tackle logjams and gridlocks that are becoming daily occurrence on some roads, two motor parks were recently given facelifts to make them render optimum service to motor vehicle transporters in Anambra State.

The two parks which were expanded were also fitted with modern public conveniences, canteens, water bore hole, loading and passenger bays, among other social amenities in line with international best practices.

They were reconstructed by the state government in partnership with a private investor.

They two motor parks are the Prof Kenneth Dike Park, which is located near Eke Awka Market in Awka metropolis and the Dicentflo Park at Igbariam Junction that spurs to Awkuzu in Oyi Local Government Area.
Speaking at their inauguration ceremonies, the Anambra State Commissioner for Transport, Dr. Christian Madubuko said that government invested in the projects to solve perennial traffic congestion around the areas and bring reprieve to motorists permanently.
According to him, passengers and commercial vehicle operators are directed to start making use of the parks, adding that government will spare nothing to ease traffic and ensure order on roads and highways.

“The essence is to ensure that we decongest traffic around the Eke Awka axis. All commercial vehicles including tricycle operators will henceforth use the parks for their businesses,” he said.

A representative of Dike Motor Park Manager, Iyke Onyekwuluje, said that apart from easing traffic around Eke Awka Market, the venture was a legacy project to bring the park up to a status befitting an icon of Prof Dike’s stature and also beautify the capital city.
