2011-06-01 12:26

A survey among 2 000 adults in the Gauteng metropolitan areas showed that a third of people believed that the road pothole problem was being reduced, TNS Research Surveys said today.

The most improvement was noted by residents of Soweto, where 40% believed the pothole problem was being tackled, and the West Rand, with 43% agreeing, said TNS director Neil Higgs.

In the Vaal Triangle only 12% of people surveyed believed the situation was being tackled.

Johannesburg, excluding Soweto, had 29%.

The study was conducted in all seven major metropolitan areas in February.
