LAST week, I saw traffic officers Joseph and Eaglefield in attendance at the bottom of Hesketh Drive where the delinquent trucks park.
They are about the only two officers whom we ever see take on the offending drivers.
It is well overdue that the city council pays our traffic officers overtime. If it is 8 pm, that’s it, clock-out time; correct me if I am wrong.
Will it take a fatal or disabling accident before anything concrete and permanent is done about the mess that is the area, especially at night?
And while talking of that area, how many millions have been spent on fixing the pavements, storm-water drains and manholes either side of New England Road? Please council, tell us ratepayers what we have paid for again and again.
And the bank at the bottom of Hesketh Drive, which is now slowly falling down on the pavement. At what cost?
