MASVINGO – The City council will soon introduce boom gates at Exor Service Station in Masvingo and all cross-border busses ranking there will pay US$10, Mayor Collen Maboke has said.
He announced this during a full council meeting on Monday.
The City Council entered into an agreement with Exor management in which boom gates will be introduced at the service station which also houses fast food outlets, a restaurant and a shop. Under the agreement, Exor will not pay rates while the City Council will be allowed to install boom gates and collect ranking fees from the busses.
Exor is the only ranking place for cross border busses in Masvingo.
Exor was owned by the late John Makova.
Maboke said the money collected from Exor will be used to build a roadport in Masvingo.
“Management was instructed to collect US$10 ranking fees at Exor Service Station. The revenue collected therefrom will be ring fenced for the establishment of a road port,” said Maboke. https://masvingomirror.com
