A ROAD, which was excavated and not repaired due to a burst pipe in December 2014, still remains unfinished and is an inconvenience for residents and motorists who frequent the area.

Residents called the Fever complaining about the corner of Memorial and Ridge roads, saying it is dangerous for motorists at night who sometimes do not see the hole and it’s an inconvenience to those who have to avoid the hole so as not to cause damage to their vehicles.

“It is also an eyesore. The area­ is well maintained and neat. Then you have this section of the road that looks hideous and untidy,” said a resident.

Residents said that it was “ridiculous­ how Ugu contractors excavated the road and didn’t bother to fix it”.

Spokesperson for Ugu District Municipality, France Zama, told the Fever on Tuesday that a team had been sent out to reinstate the road.

“The municipality apologises for the inconvenience it may have caused,” he said
