Street lights are either on all day, or never on
LAWRENCE LEONG WRITES: A light has been on during the day for the past few months at the Max Goodman Park council flats in Sixth Avenue, Bez Valley. It is opposite my residence. I hope you can help because I do not know who to contact to put an end to this wastefulness. CITY POWER REPLIES: This has been repaired. HENRY MAYHEN WRITES: We have reported non-functioning street lights to City Power for months and they still won’t come out. We are on the corner of the University of Johannesburg’s student residence in Beit and Pearse streets, Doornfontein.
Students go for classes and study at night at the library and are forced to walk through the dark streets.
It is unsafe for them. We have regular problems with cellphone and bag-snatching.
I would appreciate it if you could help in getting City Power to fix the street lights. CITY POWER REPLIES: The lights have been fixed.
ABEL MOMPEI WRITES: For more than three months the street lights in Elias Motsoaledi Road, formerly Roodepoort Road, have not been working. This is a main street joining Roodepoort and Soweto. Could you please help? MOMPEI WRITES AGAIN: After about six months of darkness in one of the busiest and biggest streets in Dobsonville, Soweto, the lights have finally been fixed. Many thanks to Metro Watch.
