Tripoli, 19 April 2015:
In a sign that some parts . . .[restrict]of Benghazi are getting back to normal, traffic lights should start working again this week.
Benghazi Crisis Committee head Zakaria Bitamer has met the head of the city’s traffic department Walid Barasi, head of the technical affairs unit Tawfiq Sharksy and electricity company director Salah Al-Abbar to discuss getting the lights working again.
Bitamer and Barasi also raised the difficulties within the traffic department over driver’s licenses and car registration plates. Many vehicles in the city have been without plates, which has contributed to the security problems. The department hopes to begin issuing licenses and plates again in the near future.
A tour of the department by Bitamer and Barasi produced plans to upgrade equipment and the building itself, carrying out necessary maintenance and repairs.
Bitamer pointed out that the Crisis Committee and the city continue to work without funds from the central government.
