Pavement a danger for pedestrian


The African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP) in the Elias Motsoaledi Local Municipality (EMLM) is concerned over unattended and broken pavement which puts the lives of residents at risk.

The party has identified unattended broken pavement as a huge danger to the pedestrians.

Chairperson of the party, Jaco Odendaal, said identified broken pavements are located at the old Midas building in Hereford Street.

He said another unattended pavement is in the same street in front of the pharmacy.

“The stones are open exposing big holes and water pipes. This poses a big danger to pedestrians, and in addition the area does not have any lights at night, it would be easy for a person to fall in the wholes and hurt themselves.” Said Odendaal.

“The holder climb of the water meter is broken and there is no piece left. The specific water meter climb is for a long period of time in this condition being broken. It poses danger for pedestrians as well as the water meter that is holding numerous implications,” he said.

Jaco said he reported the issue to the municipality but as for now, the municipality has not repaired it, therefore he calls upon the municipality again to fix it.

“As the ACDP we did report the issue to the municipality and they were aware of this dangerous pavement and the danger it holds for the pedestrian in Groblersdal, but to this day nothing has been done,” said Odendaal.
