Snail mail still goes to old street names

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

SIXTY per­cent of the mail that the Dur­ban Post Of­fice re­ceives for ad­dresses where street names have been changed still have the old street names.

This emerged yes­ter­day when Post Of­fice spokesman Jo­han Kruger de­nied ru­mours that in­cor­rectly ad­dressed mail would not be de­liv­ered.

“The Post Of­fice has no in­ten­tion of not send­ing or re­turn­ing mail that still uses the old streets names and 60 per­cent of the mail that we re­ceive still uses the old names,” he said.
