Blocked drain floods the road

The Herald (South Africa) - - YOUR VIEWS -

DEAR mayor Athol Trol­lip,

The pro­vin­cial main road that serves the Seav­iew vil­lage is be­com­ing very dan­ger­ous when it rains.

The dip at the ap­proach to the vil­lage, from the Port El­iz­a­beth side, is un­der wa­ter with the least bit of rain.

The flood­ing spreads out right across the road and is a se­ri­ous dan­ger to traf­fic.

The pipe cul­vert and side drain used to be kept open and clean by the pre­vi­ous re­gional coun­cil, but now ap­pears to be no longer main­tained.

Please, roads author­ity, don’t leave it unat­tended un­til some­thing se­ri­ous hap­pens, like a death caused by a car los­ing con­trol.

I ac­knowl­edge that fi­nances set aside for road main­te­nance are lim­ited and much needs to be done in this city, but this haz­ard is a se­ri­ous prob­lem.

Kathryn, Port El­iz­a­beth
