Beter onderhoud van gruispaaie

2017-11-30 06:01

DIE Kouga-raad het ‘n onderhoudsplan goed-gekeur vir gruispaaie in die gebied.

“Kouga se gruispaaie is jare lank afgeskeep en is in ‘n baie swak toestand,” het Burgemeester Elza van Lingen gesê.

Ten einde gruispaaie op te knap, het die munisipaliteit ‘n skraper gehuur wat van dorp na dorp gebruik sal word om paaie te skraap.

Kouga het 87,5km se gruispaaie om te onderhou. Amper die helfde van hierdie gruispaaie is in Humansdorp. Kruisfontein het amper 33km se gruispaaie en KwaNomzamo het net meer as 8km.

“Ons het reeds paaie in Kruisfontein ge-skraap en verwag om teen Desember ook in KwaNomzamo te kan begin,” het sy gesê.

New plan for gravel roads

KOUGA has rolled out a new maintenance plan for gravel roads across the region.

Executive Mayor Elza van Lingen said many of the municipality’s gravel roads were in a shocking condition following years of neglect.

“The municipality does not own its own grader. We have, however, set aside funds to hire a grader, which will be used from town to town to grade those roads most in need of attention,” she said.

Kouga has a total of 87,5km of municipal gravel roads of which almost half is in Humansdorp. Kruisfontein has almost 33km of gravel roads while KwaNomzamo has just more than 8km.

“We have already started grading roads in Kruisfontein and aim to move to KwaNomzamo by December,” she said.

Isicwangciso esitsha ngeendlela zomhlaba

IKOUGA ithe thaca isicwangciso esitsha sokulungiswa nokugcinwa komgangatho weendlela zomhlaba kuyo yonke le ngingqi.

USodolophu uElza van Lingen uthe iindlela ezininzi zomhlaba zikamasipala zikwimeko embi ngokothusayo emva kokungasiwa so iminyaka.

“Umasipala akanaye ugandaganda (grader). Kodwa, siye sabeka imali bucala ukuze siqeshe ugandaganda ozakuthi asetyenziswe kwidolophu nedolophu, kukrwelwe ezo ndlela zidinga ukuhoywa kamsinya,” utshilo.

IKouga inomgama wendlela yomhlaba kamasipala engange 87,5 km, nekuphantse kube sisiqingatha sazo ziseHumansdorp.

“Sesiqalile ukukrwela iindlela eKruisfontein kwaye sijonje ukuba siye KwaNomzamo xa singena kuDecember, utshilo. “IKruisfontein phantse ina 33km yeendlela zomhlaba, ngelixa iKwaNomzamo inangaphezulu nje kwe 8km.”
