ROAD users of the stretch between Patensie town and Ramaphosa Village will no longer have to worry about darkness on the road, particularly at night.

The Kouga municipality recently switched on 19 streetlights along the 1,2km road which is the main entrance to Ramaphosa.

The R350 000 project took longer than initially planned due to the paving of the road and the municipality giving way to the paving contractor to finish first.

Speaking during the switch-on ceremony Ward 10 and Infrastucture, Planning and Development Portfolio Councillor Patrick Kota thanked the community for being patient and understanding that both the paving work and the street lights were of importance.

“We have had a few incidences of crime, especially at night, and motorists complaining about poor visibility along this curvaceous stretch,” he said.

Kota added that the municipality was under obligation to improve the community’s infrastructure and therefore their livelihoods as well.
