State of roads

Wayne Oates, Somerset West

On Thursday August 23, I sent the following letter to the City of Cape Town:

“I felt it essential that I address you on the worsening state of the roads in Somerset West with pot holes being numerous and expanding while general road maintenance is poor. I look forward to your reply and hopefully action in this regard.”

On Tuesday August 28, I received the following reply from Elana Brummer, Customer Relations:
