NEARLY five months have gone by and a Hibberdene resident is still trying to get authorities to give a pothole strewn road their attention.

After liaising with the local municipality for a few months, he was told that the road is the responsibility of the Department of Transport as it is a national road.

“I have been waiting for contact numbers of who to ask for assistance but none has been forthcoming,” said a resident and driver who uses the road to commute between work and home every day.

He said the potholes, which are turning into craters, is going to cause a serious accident and possibly the death of somebody soon.

“I have see many drivers swerve to avoid oncoming cars on several occasions as motorists are trying to avoid the potholes,” he added.

“It’s a very busy road and I’ve heard from others as well of bad driving experiences that they have encountered on the same road.”

The Department of Transport was contacted for comment but none was made available to the South Coast Fever at the time of publishing on Wednesday.
