The DA in Limpopo calls on the MEC for Public Works, Roads and Infrastructure, Nkakareng Rakgoale, for  urgent intervention over the appalling state of the D3180 road between Ga Kgapane and Modjadjiskloof. View photos here, here, here, here and video here.

DA Councillor, Matome Serumula, carried out an oversight visit to the road following numerous complaints from residents, farmers and motorists.

The road seems to be caving in from both sides and is in bad condition because of shoddy workmanship and erosion of layers below the tar. The road also poses a threat to pedestrians as there are no warning signs of the condition of the road.

Besides residents and workers of the surrounding areas using the roads for their daily commute, this road is also key to the major economic activities of the area. The failure to maintain the road is hampering local economic development and the accessibility of services for residents in surrounding areas and villages.

The DA will be submitting written questions to MEC Rakgoale, seeking clarity on the department's plans and timelines for the road's restoration.

The DA cares about the safety of road users and is committed to ensuring the provision of a safe, adequate provincial road infrastructure network that stimulates economic development and job opportunities for the people of Limpopo.
