. It is imperative that the City of Cape Town comes to terms with the fact that there is a solution to the MyCiTi bus dilemma in South Road. If they let that bus through Naruna Estate, there will be no more challenges. The bus can link up via Churchill Road to Wynberg; from Khayelitsha down Klip Road, Grassy Park into Victoria Road, then down Casino Road and into Churchill Road. How is this bus going to go under Wittebome bridge which is already congested? We need transport, instead of going to the M5 for a taxi that is not safe. The bus will also pass all the schools in the neighbourhood. – Kitty

. The MyCiTi plan must go ahead. People were given adequate notice. With the increase in traffic and population, the current road and transport systems are not coping. Apartheid has nothing to do with it. – CJ, Plumstead

. It is heartless to uproot residents staying in South Road and the surrounding areas. What if they were your parents and they didn’t have a place to go? Yes, it is council property, but you had to inform them when you first let them to stay there that the houses are not permanent residences.

. The National Council of Provinces has no right to be there. Not their job. These houses belong to the City and have been earmarked to be demolished long ago.

. If the MyCiti route is going ahead why are they wasting money on fixing the pavements in Waterbury Road?


. I prefer a three-way stop at the Bower and Constantia Main road intersection. No more traffic lights, please. – Carolyn

. The Constantia Main/Bower road intersection should be a three-way stop. Cheapest and most effective. – Noeline

. After a 20-year absence memories of my youth were shattered when visiting Wynberg. If these CCTV cameras are the answer to revitalising the area then the authorities have my full support
