Transport not easy for some

2016-12-01 06:00

IN your last issue, 24 November, it was mentioned that illegal stopping has started again on the R102 at the entrance of Port Shepstone CBD.

Well a note to readers - many people have been hiking on that stretch and I have never seen or heard of car accidents due to hiking on that stretch.

People shop at surrounding shops, including Pick n Pay, and thereafter wait for transport to get back home. I am one of many people who wait at that point for transport to Banana Beach.

If the municipality took away a few metres of railway and two to three metres in, there would be a parking bay for motorists to stop.

We pay for transport, it isn’t free. We have become reliant on that stretch. So please, people, we are human and we need a way to reach our destinations. The problem is that you have transport, that is why you are quick to complain. Some of us don’t - so sit back and think before jumping to conclusions.
