Juldan Motors licence suspension partialy lifted
By NATION REPORTER THE suspension of the road service licence for Juldan Motors Bus Services has been partially lifted with immediate effect following inspections on the operator’s fleet and the retesting of its drivers.
According to a letter dated May 15 signed by Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) chief executive officer Zindaba Soko to Juldan Motors, the bus company had met some conditions which were set before the suspension of the licence could be lifted.
Last month, the company had its road service licence suspended by the agency after a spate of road traffic accidents involving its buses.Mr Soko said Juldan Motors had committed itself to fully implementing the Fleet Safety Management Policy.
“In view of the commitment that Juldan Motor Bus Services has made to fully implement the Fleet Safety Management Policy, the Agency has decided to grant the operator a partial reinstatement of the road service licence,” he said.
Mr Soko said the partial reinstatement was only for 46 buses which had passed roadworthiness inspection tests and for 62 drivers who had passed driving tests.
He also said Juldan Motors would permit RTSA officers and any other authorized persons to carry out random and monthly inspections of its operations to monitor compliance with the Fleet Safety Management Policy.
