EPWP workers clean the street

Jane Furse


The Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) employees embarked on a clean up the street campaign on Monday 16th.

Sekhukhune Times spotted the workers along R579 road heading to Jane Furse Plaza, cleaning river sand on the road.

According to the workers, heavy rains forced and pushed the sand in to the road which could possible cause accidents.

“We are trusted with a very serious responsibility and that is making sure that our area is clean” said workers.

They have also pleaded the businesses, residents and everyone not to litter anywhere as it caused pollution.

“We would be happy if businesses could make their area litter free. And we call upon hawkers to also clean the spaces they operate in, instead of contributing to the problem of littering” they implored.

Speaking of main cause they said the problem is shortage of bins in and around the area, and they called upon the Makhuduthamaga local municipality to process the bin along the roads.

They said it was very hard to clean up the street due to influx of people on the area during the day.

At the corner of Jane Furse crossing at the four crossing, traffic lights were not working and that resulted in high volume of traffic congestion that was unavoidable as motorists were forced to line up.

But one of the taxi drivers said after floods the traffic lights usually don’t work.
