He continued: “We are going to make sure that the mobile courts work with the designs of our roads so that we can have rest areas. We are currently working on an initiative for trailer parks and there is quite a lot to do.

“As part of our vision 2050, the Edo State 30-year development plan, there is a session where we want to start to build our transport master plan. We will need the input from the national road safety plan”.

“There must be recommendations from road designs and transport policies, which we will need to bring into our own planning in Edo,” the governor added.

In his remarks, Shaibu noted: “I want to thank Mr. Governor for this opportunity and assure him of our unalloyed commitment to making sure that the purpose for which this advisory council was established is actualized”.
