“The purpose of this exercise is to see how we can start freeing up the CBD so that it is easier moving in and out. Our objective is to discourage people from using their vehicles so if you can leave your vehicle at home the better but if you have to come to the City, once we implement the initiative there will be designated parking areas at the periphery of the City,” stated Macharia.
