The operation, conducted in collaboration with the state police and the council’s Engineering Department, took place this morning along Chandwe Musonda and Kafue Roads from 06:00hrs to 11:30hrs.

The local authority is unwavering in its commitment to instill order and discipline in truck parking within the city, and routine inspections will persist to ensure compliance.

Nyambe Bulumba, Assistant Public Relations Manager, issued a statement, urging truck drivers and owners to adhere to parking regulations. The LCC seeks the cooperation of the public in reporting any instances of trucks illegally parked to the council or the police for swift intervention.
