Con­cerns over safety on bridge

The Rep - - IN OUR POST BAG - CON­CERNED of Ko­mani writes:

The South African Rail­way Ser­vices need to take re­spon­si­bil­ity for the bridge over the sta­tion in Ko­mani.

There have been nu­mer­ous in­ci­dents of rob­beries and at­tacks on the bridge and it is just not safe any more.

Chil­dren and adults both seem to be as vul­ner­a­ble and the crim­i­nals seem to strike with im­punity.

The SA Rail­way Ser­vices should as­sist the pub­lic by en­sur­ing that se­cu­rity is pro­vided on the bridge. A se­cu­rity guard at both the ac­cess and exit points would make the world of a dif­fer­ence. The po­lice could also do some foot pa­trols at odd times.

I hope it does not take a tragedy for this mat­ter to re­ceive the at­ten­tion it de­serves. It has, af­ter all, been many years dur­ing which com­plaints over the safety of the bridge have been raised as is­sues of great con­cern.
