VANDERBIJLPARK - The Democratic Alliance has launched a petition calling on the Emfuleni Local Municipality to fix and upgrade roads that are riddled with potholes and are in a general state of disrepair. The DA’s Dady Mollo says road users are often seen driving on the sidewalks, risking getting into accidents because the condition of the roads has rendered them unsafe to drive on. Mollo states that the current state of the roads also poses a risk to the local economy as it may lead to businesses pulling out of the area or deter those who want to invest there. The DA has launched a petition calling on the municipality to conduct a full-scale audit on the state of roads and for the municipality to make a provision to upgrade and ensure that the much-needed maintenance takes place.
