Your activities litter the road. There will be consequences for mechanics using the road for their trade after the one month period. The vehicles being repaired will be seized . The RSG will not allow the operation of illegal motor parks and car shops along the road.

The Police and other security agencies have been coopted to serve on the implementation process.
