The report highlighted that one of the main causes of accidents on the road as all vehicles having to move on one lane.
In addition to the separate lane for the motorcycles, the report also suggested a special pavement for joggers, due to the increase in people using the road for exercise and jogging purposes, apart from managing the road so that it is well lit at night and to ensure all pot holes are fixed.
