RDA to roll out new technology
THE Road Development Agency (RDA) says it will soon introduce Weigh-InMotion technology at all toll plazas across the country. RDA Director and Chief Executive Officer Eng. Elias Mwape said this will help to curb corruption in an event a transporter underpaid the required maximum weights and dimensions of vehicles permissible for transmission on public roads at the weigh-bridge. He noted that the introduction of Weigh-In-Motion technology is aimed at protecting major roads networks from premature damage. The Chief Executive Office said RDA wants transporters to adhere to the provisions of the public roads maximum weight of vehicles as per regulations. Mr Mwape also revealed that the agency is migrating all weigh bridges to multi deck platforms with the Kafue and Kapiri Mposhi weigh bridges having been migrated already. Meanwhile Mr Mwape says there is need for revising the K4,075.00 inspection and escort fee.
