Unmarked road bumps a disaster in waiting

12 January 2015, 10:44 Robert Chepkwony

Nakuru - The National Disaster Risk Management Unit (NDMU) has called for marking of bumps erected at the Kibunja- Sachang’wan descend towards Salgaa highway.

The unit’s national Deputy Director, Pius Mwachi said the unmarked bumps pose danger to the road users, especially drivers of heavy trucks.

In a bid to curb road carnage especially those caused by speeding trucks descending the highway, the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) in conjunction with KENHA erected bumps in the notorious black-spot.

“It was a positive move to erect bumps, but then they need to be marked to avoid further danger,” said Mwachi.

Earlier, elders in Nakuru had faulted unmarked bumps saying they were likely to cause more calamities.

Immediately after their erection, the bumps attracted roadside fruit vendors who take advantage of slowing vehicles to sell their commodities to travelers.

Mwachi called on the NTSA to take action by banning roadside vendors in the descending road saying they were risking their lives.

Mid last year, NTSA in conjunction with the stakeholders proposed creation of an alternative road at the descending lane to be used solely by the trucks following a series of accidents.
