City of Masvingo has erected solar-powered traffic lights at the intersection of Robert Mugabe Road and Leopold Takawira Street in the CBD.
The intersection is one of the busiest in town and has seen a number of fatal accidents over the years.
Residents were pleased by the prospect of safer passage through the intersection with lower chances of getting involved in accidents.
"The place was a black sport. Motorists were prone to accidents at that place. Last Saturday evening, two cars collided at that spot and it was fortunate that nobody got hurt," said one taxi driver.
Other motorists urged council to erect more traffic lights in the city saying there are other dangerous intersections that cannot be ignored any longer.
"The intersection of Robert Mugabe and Simon Muzenda close to Puzzey and Payne is quite dangerous. Let's have traffic lights there," said one motorist.news
