THERE are 31 street lights out of order in Buffelsfontein Road on the stretch between 17th Avenue (Builder’s Warehouse) and 10th Avenue, Walmer. The road area through the tall trees in the vicinity of 11th and 10th avenues is actually almost totally dark.
Is the ward councillor aware of this black state of affairs and, if so, what is he doing about it? These lights did not simply go out all at the same time which would lead me to think that our council does not either have a maintenance plan to attend to the replacement of lights or, perhaps worse still, that our council does not have the funding.
Buffelsfontein is a major through road and a rather dodgy area after hours. Please enlighten us !
