HARARE residents say driving in the Central Business District is now a nightmare.
They have also called for the rehabilitation of bus terminuses in the Central Business District (CBD) and better parking markings.
The lack of clear markings has left residents confused and there are calls for additional terminuses to be built to accommodate all public transport in the city.
People have also requested that benches be added for disabled people.
Drivers have complained about the unclear zebra crossings and that parking lines need urgent council attention.
There are also concerns that parking is scarce in the CBD, which is affecting businesses.
“Parking is scarce in town and that is affecting business, the CBD is slowly becoming the worst place to drive in,” said a motorist.
A vendor, Rutendo Mutema, said:
“Harare City Council is making life hard for pedestrians who use public transport because kombis are now being boarded at unsafe places.
“The terminuses we have are not enough to accommodate all the public transport in Harare so they end up using unsafe places as ranks.
“They should rehabilitate the ranks and put benches for disabled people and also to make it easier for commuters to wait for transport in safe places.
“Old people cannot move alone in town because it is no longer safe to move in the CBD. Kombis are everywhere and they move like they are on a race track.”
