“There are several issues and challenges around here and we need to boost their morale.

“We also intended to sit down with stakeholders, especially the road transport unions,” Biu said.

Biu, who also spoke on speeding, particularly by some commercial bus drivers, said the need for speed limit device to regulate them was necessary.
