Heavy trucks banned from Bor town  

By Manyuon Mayen Manyuon

Jonglei State Governor Philip Aguer has banned heavy vehicles from accessing the roads within the state capital Bor.

Governor Aguer said that the movement of trucks in Bor town was contributing to the poor road networks and potholes within the town and delays the ongoing road rehabilitations in the State.

”We usually have poor roads during the rainy season in both town and northern part of Jonglei State. We have now banned driving of big trucks within the town because they contribute to poor roads which is often not easily rehabilitated,” Aguer said.

He reiterated that most roads are normally cut-off during rainy season which is attributed to the big trucks that spoil the roads.

”This year we have started repairing the roads so the big trucks should not be driven when it has rained. The drivers should have to stop for at least 12 to 24 hours,” Governor Aguer said.

He said road maintenance was the responsibility of every citizen including the government, farmers, business community, and cattle keepers.

“We have to respect the road rules when we are told by the authorities,” Aguer added.
