RTSA partially lifts suspension slapped on Juldan Motors
The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) has with immediate effect partially lifted the suspension of the road service license for Juldan Motors Bus Services.
This follows a report on the inspection that was carried out by the Agency in respect of the operator’s fleet and the re-test of its drivers.
In a letter dated May 15, 2018 and signed by RTSA Director and Chief Executive Officer Zindaba Soko, the Agency has observed that Juldan Motors Bus Services has met some of the conditions that were set in the suspension letter.
Soko stated that in view of the commitments Juldan Motors Bus Services has made to fully implement the Fleet Safety Management Policy, the Agency has decided to grant the operator a partial reinstatement of the road service license no.
“…The partial reinstatement of the road service license is only in respect of the forty six (46) buses that have so far passed the roadworthiness inspection tests as well as sixty two (62) drivers who have passed the driving tests. The operator will permit officers of the Agency and any other person authorised by the Agency to carry out random and monthly inspections of its operations to monitor compliance with the Fleet Safety Management Policy,” stated Soko.
“The operator will be required to provide the Agency with weekly Global Positing System (GPS) reports to verify which buses are moving. The operator will ensure that any additions to its fleet for approval should be in form of written communication. Further, the operator does not use any vehicle or driver that is not authorised in accordance with the RTSA approved list of buses and drivers, failure to which the operator risks having their Road Service license (RSL) revoked forthwith.”
