Construction of Cnr Bradburn Street and Industria Road pick-up and drop-off point on cards
In a historic development that is set to decongest the Central Business District of Masvingo City, Masvingo City Council is set to establish a pick-up and drop-off point at the corner of Braburn Street and Industria Road.
The construction of the pick-up and drop-off point, which is designed to decongest the city and put an end to illegal pick up points is set to commence soon following identification and approval of the site by Public Works and Planning Committee.
Bradburn-Industria drop-off and pick-up point is meant to cater for long-distance buses going to major cities and towns like Harare, Bulawayo, Mutare, Gweru, and Beitbridge. The establishment of this facility is expected to bring sanity in the City and bring convenience to pedestrians and motorists.
This will be the first of such facilities that is expected to be erected as a piloting concept in the city. The facility will be fitted with boom gates to facilitate the control of buses. The purpose of the pick-up and drop-off point is to ensure that long-distance buses do not park on the streets.
Long-distance buses will be obliged to use the yet to be constructed new facility to end congestion in the city.
