WHILST the only sound you can hear over the illegal traffic humps in town is from the vehicles, the hugely potholed, muddy travesty of Nel Road is a very wet splashity splash.

The fact that we are still in the midst of a serious drought (the 30 mls over the weekend pushed the Lake to just on 29.64%) does not affect the wet status, as the overflow from the tankers filling up with water at the water works means its pretty moist around there most of the time.

This is an Umvoti Municipality road which is in constant use, especially during term time, as pupils are collected from Greytown High School and St Davids.

Because they are local, they know the story. But the number of out of town visitors who make their way to the tea garden along this road do not know that. To them it’s a shocking stretch of road which can do a fair amount of damage if not driven along at just about nought kms an hour.

Greytown currently does not have too many tourist attractions so it is very sad that it has become an obstacle course to get to one of the most popular ones.

First on the Greytown Gazette’s current wish list to the municipality – fix up Nel Road fast.
