Traf­fic cir­cle for KwaDwesi

The Herald (South Africa) - - OPINION & ANALYSIS -

I WANT to con­grat­u­late Mr Trol­lip for mak­ing re­sources avail­able to fix the in­ter­sec­tion at the en­trance to Walmer town­ship re­cently.

Now surely the next may­oral project is KwaDwesi’s Ziyabuya Com­plex en­trance and in­ter­sec­tion.

The traf­fic log­jam dur­ing peak hours on this precinct is un­bear­able, with pedes­trian, car traf­fic, taxis, shop­pers and hawk­ers all jostling for space and mobility.

Is this log­jam ig­nored by the mu­nic­i­pal­ity’s au­thor­i­ties be­cause of it be­ing a black area?

We can’t cope with this peak-hour chaos any­more at KwaDwesi.

I urge the traf­fic de­part­ment to go and ob­serve the morn­ing and af­ter­work peak hours to see for them­selves – such chaos and com­pe­ti­tion for space!

A cir­cle or a set of ro­bots to man­age such big peak-hour vol­umes is ur­gently re­quired to have peace of mind when ap­proach­ing the in­ter­sec­tion and be safe from in­evitable ac­ci­dents and fen­der-dent­ing – prefer­ably a cir­cle.

Your at­ten­tion on this mat­ter will be much ap­pre­ci­ated.

Linda, Port El­iz­a­beth
