Not only is it costly to replace, it puts commuters’ safety at risk and delays service delivery that is needed elsewhere. Every time we replace something that we already had, we are delaying another community project. This criminality must stop.

Also, please comply with the road signs and flag personnel’s instructions when moving around the construction site,’ said Councillor Quintas. </p><p><br><strong>End</strong><br></p>2022-05-29T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#792a36fa-9d0a-4f24-9f63-98557db59729;L0|#0792a36fa-9d0a-4f24-9f63-98557db59729|Mitchells Plain;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#386e6d11-1c73-4d63-9956-3cc3eab4415f;L0|#0386e6d11-1c73-4d63-9956-3cc3eab4415f|public transport10
