VIDEO: Ward councillor tackles road hazards and broken streetlights

Ward councillor Cindy Billson at the formerly dangerous intersection on Old Johannesburg Road.

The troublesome intersection at the Hoërskool Zwartkop along the old Johannesburg road has been upgraded.

Local councillor Cindy Billson said this was a victory for the local community as the intersection had been a headache for many years.

“The facelift was completed recently, giving motorists traffic lights and a pavement to prevent motorists making risky illegal U-turns.

Billson said the intersection had always been a safety risk to learners and all other pedestrians using the zebra crossing into the residential area.

Billson said the inoperable streetlights local community had been struggling with for the past 10 years had also been fixed.

“Some may see this as small issues, but having a working streetlight in this cul-de-sac, makes it much safer,” said Billson.

She said the community had been very patient.

“When our hard work pays off, the community we serve makes it all seem worth it when they show their appreciation.”

Billson said some battles were not won yet, but that changes in ward 69 were continuous and for the better.
