More road damage in Kouga

The heavy rains over the past two days have caused yet more damage to the road infrastructure of Jeffreys Bay. The Kouga Municipality closed Aapies draai yesterday due to flooding in the “dip”.

Pot holes along the Aston Bay access road have yet again increased in size and motorists are urged to drive carefully. The financial constraints being experienced by the Kouga Municipality are evident as cement and soil is being used to repair pot holes, instead of tar.

The suburb of Ocean View is once again a no go zone for cars are the unpaved roads became a quagmire due to the heavy rain. With no storm water drainage system, the water floods roads and even houses in the suburb.

The weather outlook for the next few days is looking fair, which will give the excess water time to drain away.
