Daily Nation Newspaper - - Home News - -ZANIS

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.
