6th of October city places signs banning tuk tuk vehicles



Head of 6th of October City Development Authority Sherif al-Sherbini decided on Wednesday to place guiding signboards on the most important landmarks in the city and to add traffic signboards to streets to prevent tuk-tuks from driving in the city.

The Head of the Development Authority of 6th of October City Sherief al-Sherbeny in June announced a ban on the operation of tuk-tuk vehicles in the city.

He stressed that the authority will deal decisively, taking all legal and immediate actions, against those who violate this decision.

Sherbeny said that about 1,000 van vehicles have been approved to replace tuk-tuks.

He stressed in a press statement that campaigns will continue until tuk-tuks are eliminated from the city in order to maintain the city planning pattern and eliminate unplanned features in the city.

Sherbeny pointed out that several campaigns have been launched to eliminate the spread of tuk-tuk vehicles and the use of undesignated parking spaces as they are violations of law.
