Add a subordinating conjunction to the first clause, such as if, although, whereas, as long as, when, until, unless, before, whenever, while, despite, after, etc. Replace the repeated subject with a pronoun and adjust wording accordingly. Because the subordinating conjunction makes the first half of the compound sentence (the information)
unable to stand on its own, it becomes more difficult for a reporter to quote the clause without the second half of the sentence (the message)
"Despite the road being safe, we are committed to ensuring ingress and egress on it remains so."
