Construction material transport businesses told to behave

The Kandal Provincial Administration has warned businesses transporting construction materials such as sand, rocks and gravels of a shutdown if they do not respect their contracts and relevant regulations.

The provincial hall encouraged authorities to impound the trucks and fine the owners for violation.

The warning was made during a meeting between provincial deputy governor Nob Dara and 22 business owners on October 21. Dara also stressed that businesses that are operating without a licence will face a shutdown.

Dara said overloading is strictly prohibited.

“Overloading causes road damages and other problems of public concern. It also affects the environment and leads to traffic jams,” he said.

Dara said that for all transport of sand, gravels and rocks, the business owner must instruct their drivers to clean the truck tires before leaving depots. They have to properly cover the sand, gravels and rocks and drivers need to maintain a good attitude while driving. They also have to clean the road on which they travelled.

Dara also told authorities to look out for drivers who consume drugs while behind the wheels.
