Councillor takes bull by the horns

2016-11-10 06:00

I AM glad to see that the DA ward councillor George Henderson has taken the bull by the horns and is getting the roads into shape again, and also taking the time and trouble to advise the public concerning the pothole issues that has been a growing concern in the past.

Also it seems that with more teams at work we should see a difference in workmanship too. I just hope that more effort will be put into the job now with more stone compressed into the holes to hold the tar in place and allowing enough drying time before putting road into use again.

Rather a job done correctly and longer wear and tear than a rushed job and money wasted on poor workmanship as it has been to date.

So let’s hold thumbs and see what takes place with the new teams at work. Maybe now we can start driving decently on our roads again and not looking like a lot of drunk drivers anymore by trying to miss potholes.
