The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA), the Road Development Agency (RDA) and the Lusaka City Council (LCC) have embarked on an exercise to remove all billboards that obstruct the road.
On Thursday, the three agencies razed down billboards on Great East Road and Addis Ababa Drive that were obstructing road users.
RTSA Chief Executive Officer Zindaba Soko told Journalists that the agencies were acting on complaints from members of the public.
Mr Soko said the billboards must be at least 2 metres high off the ground so as to give the motorists and pedestrians a good view of the road.
He regretted that most billboards have been mounted less than a metre off the ground thereby being hazardous to the road users by way of obstruction.
