Pothole hotline

2010-01-27 00:00

WHILE the deterioration of local road surfaces is cause for concern, it is fair comment that the Msunduzi and uMngeni municipalities cannot monitor every pothole across a wide network of roads. The public has now been invited to report problems and municipal management has undertaken to attend to them. It is an admirable opportunity for the proverbial “man in the street” to contribute to maintaining those streets in good condition. The success of this mutually supportive scheme depends on both parties playing their part, and particularly on whether the municipalities keep the contact lines open and take effective action. This newspaper will observe progress with interest.
