Road­side con­di­tion ap­palling

Eyethu Baywatch - - LETTERS -

THE con­di­tion of the road­side along Ng­welezane Street in Em­pan­geni is an eye­sore with build­ing rub­ble, waste and rub­bish lin­ing the road.

On top of the ap­palling con­di­tion, we have trucks parked on ei­ther side of the road pro­trud­ing onto the busy road in full view of the traf­fic cops at the nearby in­ter­sec­tion. Why is noth­ing ever done? This busy road can­not be a truck stop as well.

Who is re­spon­si­ble for clear­ing the build­ing rub­ble, which ob­vi­ously be­longs to the ad­ja­cent com­pa­nies?

It is sad that the mu­nic­i­pal­ity just over­looks these trans­gres­sors. They would never al­low this pol­lu­tion in the Richards Bay CBD.

Yet we must watch the con­di­tion of the Em­pan­geni CBD de­te­ri­o­rate. We are also ratepay­ers and our needs can­not be ig­nored.

Fix Em­pan­geni too!
