UO ASA Demands Road Safety Measures for Students

Okara (HRNW)- The University of Okara’s Academic Staff Association (ASA), in its meeting on Saturday, demanded the district government to implement the road safety measures on the canal road as well as National Highway in a bid to prevent any kind of untoward incident.
The ASA President, Dr. Hamood-Ur-Rehman, called upon the district authorities to deploy traffic wardens on the roads where the UO’s 12,000 students have to move from dawn till dusk. The other office-bearers of the ASA including Dr. Shoaib Saleem, Dr. Muhammad Iqbal, Dr. Faheem Arshad and Rai Imtiaz Hussain were also present in the meeting.
The ASA also decided to convince the district administration on extending the pedestrian bridge over the NHA or building of the flyover so that the students can have fast and easy access to the university from the main Multan Road.
According to the university spokesperson, currently, the UO hosts 12,000 students and most of the commute to the campus in private transport because the university is affording just 9 buses that provide pick and drop to the female students. In this scenario, there are chances of road accidents surrounding the university.
“The UO Administration, under the leadership of the Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Muhammad Zakria Zakar, has taken certain preventive measures including the training of the students on environmental health and safety and installation of speed limit signboards but the traffic authorities should also cooperate and provide us with the necessary infrastructure”, told the Spokesperson.
