Sanral keeps adding to lies

2015-11-18 06:00

SANRAL as you know, now claims that the red dots are for taxi drop-off­ points and are not toll points.

Sanral keeps adding to its lies. I have to ask then, why has Sanral­ not shown where taxi commuters­ have to cross over the N2 or does it expect them to walk all the way over the bridge to get down to the station or FNB for their pensions or to work in the many flats along the beach front, or are we going to have more deaths and accidents when some try to run across the busy N2.

Next, I took the trouble to speak to a few of the Toti taxi drivers and asked them where the bulk of commuters come from and return to and they said that more than 90% come from KwaMakhutha and areas­ west.
Can you imagine how they are going to get from Adams Road to the new bridge, and what a nightmare for the traffic then.
I am sure the con(in)sultants never even bothered to speak to the taxi people who play a big part in the transport of our less fortunate folk.

Also to put another spike in Sanral­’s bloated balloon, we need to ask, if it is so concerned about our safety on the roads in Toti­, why has it done nothing about Twini Hill’s hazardous poor camber design.
Also why did it take a year to respond­ to the late David Labuschagne­’s regular pleas to put a high fence in the Toti CBD between the lanes of the N2 where many of our people lost their lives crossing there.

By the way, in the latest Sunday Times section “Neighbourhood” there is a very interesting picture on the front page of a fly-over bridge.
Why can’t Sanral have something similar to PMB and maybe ask its engineers to design one for Toti.

I am looking forward to the time when people come forward with better suggestions instead of accosting me in supermarkets or wherever, and say, “we see you are at war again with Sanral, keep it up”.
