Bus traffic to be curbed in centre of Vanuatu capital

2:27 pm on 17 January 2014

Vanuatu is reportedly poised to restrict the entry of public buses into the centre of the capital to ease traffic congestion.

The Port Vila Efate Land Transport Association and the Port Vila Municipality are to run a one-week trial with the new measure.

It would see the buses stopped at certain points to make passengers walk into the Central Business District.

A spokesman for the initiative has told our correspondent that the restrictions won't apply to private cars and taxis.
