An­other John Ross Park­way warn­ing

Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO NEWS - Tam­lyn Jolly

LAST week’s heavy rains have caused the fur­ther de­te­ri­o­ra­tion and what looks like an im­mi­nent col­lapse of yet an­other sec­tion of the John Ross Park­way.

A por­tion of road near the John Ross and Ar­bore­tum in­ter­sec­tion ap­pears to have been un­der­mined by an un­der­ground storm water sys­tem.

The ZO re­ported the is­sue to the City of uMh­lathuze some four months ago, when cracks first be­gan to ap­pear in the right hand lane of the west­bound car­riage­way, next to a drain at the cen­tre me­dian.

To date, no fol­low-up ap­pears to have been car­ried out and the road has rapidly de­te­ri­o­rated from re­cent rains.

‘The John Ross/Ar­bore­tum crack has been re­ported to the De­part­ment of Trans­port for in­spec­tion,’ said City of uMh­lathuze Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Man­ager Mdu Ncalane.

‘We will fol­low up again on this one.’
