REF:ADDITIONAL PARKING LOT

Theabove subject matter refers.

Followinggovernment’s decision to close various sections of state roads forimprovement, the students in my campus have been happy lot. The goodnews ended worries and pain that the students have experienced whileusing bad roads in the area.

However,since the work began, a new challenge has replaced the old problem.

Theclosure of the bypass due to road work has greatly affected the flowof traffic around our campus. The road leads to a shopping mall andconnects most parts of the town to the national stadium. Because ofthe closure, drivers use a diversion that cuts through the lowersection of the campus and passes behind the shopping mall.

Theexcess traffic in the diversion has negatively impacted on studentsthat reside in the campus halls of residence. Studies have revealedthese negative impacts of traffic jams as wastage of time and money(Docherty &amp Shaw, 2008). Other negative effects include apolluted air due to increased gaseous emissions by cars (Nagel etal., 2003). There have been reports about rising number of studentshaving mild effects of these emissions. Most motorists leave theirvehicles on the roadsides as they make their way by foot to thestadium. Some of them are unable to find parking spaces in theshopping mall, forcing them to park in the lower section of campuswhere students park their cars. Students have no place to park.

Thisletter asks you to respond to this matter. Kindly increase moreparking spaces by opening the old parking lot initially reserved forconstruction of stadium to reduce the pressure. You can ban largevehicles from using this route because it is narrow. They can useother alternative routes. Assign one officer to ensure that those whopark there are campus students. They should show their student IDsbefore parking.

Iam looking forward to hear from you.

Faithfullyyours,

Concernedcitizen
