Anambra Traffic Management Agency, ATMA impounds vehicles in Onitsha, moves vehicles to Urban Terminal Park

 www.odogwublog.com reports that the Anambra Traffic Management Agency, ATMA, has impounded several vehicles believed to be obstructing traffic in Onitsha, and some long vehicles stationed along Obodoukwu Road, Okpoko, in Ogbaru causing traffic jam were directed to leave the area.

The vehicle drivers were told to move into Urban Terminal One Park located in Upper Iweka which was provided by the state government, even as the Chief Executive officer, ATMA, Mr. Chris Uzoechina, has restated its commitment to ensuring free flow of traffic in the state.
He said the Agency embarked on a decongestion along Onitsha highways to monitor traffic flow within the area.
Mr Uzoechina, said that the measure is to drive home the need to free roadsides and motorways in the state of traffic congestion, envisioned by Governor Willie Obiano

The ATMA boss who noted that the exercise will be continuous until the compliance becomes absolute, charged all vehicle owners to exploit the security situations in Anambra state and make life easy for the people.

Shortly after freeing Owerri Road Onitsha of congestion, a DAF lorry loaded with notebooks skidded and fell along the area where human and vehicular traffic was concentrated before the ATMA clearing.

Reacting to the incident, Mr Uzoechina explained that lives would have been lost if not that the Agency forced petty traders and bus drivers to evacuate the vicinity,

On his Part, an eyewitness of the incident, Mr Kennedy Mbanefo, appreciated the efforts of the Nigerian Police Force for arriving immediately and securing the goods, and called on government to
reconstruct Onitsha-Owerri express road.

The exercise was jointly carried out with members of Operation Clean and Healthy Anambra, OCHA Brigade.
