More logic needed at con­struc­tion site

Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO LETTERS -

WHAT leads to the bulk of work be­ing done on the John Ross/N2 bridge to be un­der­taken dur­ing peak hour traf­fic?

Why are the reg­u­lar road users be­ing held up by work be­ing done on this con­struc­tion site at 5.30pm?

There is sim­ply no logic to it. An un­der­tak­ing of this size - and ex­pense - must surely have money in the budget with which to hire a pro­fes­sional project man­ager, who would know that there is no rea­son in the world to bring the en­tire road to a stand­still for no valid rea­son.

I would like to ap­peal to the city, lo­cal project man­agers and all oth­ers con­cerned to please be con­sid­er­ate of the thou­sands of com­muters who are in­con­ve­nienced when things like this are not planned prop­erly.

I would also like to utilise this rant­ing ses­sion to take aim at those mo­torists who were able to give way, but failed to do so, to am­bu­lances who used that con­gested in­ter­sec­tion on Wed­nes­day evening last week.

I trust that none of your rel­a­tives were in­volved in the emer­gency that these am­bu­lances were try­ing to reach.
