Road safety is a top priority for Musina Municipality. These are the words of Musina Mayor, Cllr Mihloti Muhlope. She said she is happy that the Musina Municipality is successfully implementing its road maintenance plan with special emphasis to the repair of potholes. This is because most of the roads were damaged during the heavy rains in the previous months.

The mayor left her office to monitor the progress of the road maintenance team which is presently working tirelessly to repair potholes. She said: “Road safety has an impact on everyone, whether you drive, walk or circle. If the roads are well maintained, chances of fatal accidents become less and many lives are saved. We are now heading towards the festive season where we expect huge volumes of traffic in our roads. We want to make sure that the majority of our roads are fixed and user-friendly during the festive season.”

She said the fact that the number of vehicle owners is increasing daily makes the municipality to be more aggressive when dealing with the issues of road repairs. “After repairing the potholes, we will make sure that the roads are properly marked to meet the required standards. Road markings are important because they provide guidance and information to drivers and pedestrians. They assist in minimizing confusion and uncertainty about the rules of the roads – thereby helping the municipality in providing safer roads and better routes for easy traffic flow.” 

When addressing some members of the road maintenance team at their work sites, Muhlope commended them for their hard work and dedication towards the improvement of the municipality’s road network.

The mayor encouraged all road users to be responsible at all times. “All people have the responsibility to ensure that their actions on our roads do not impact negatively on the lives of others. The festive season is just around the corner and we should all make sure that we stay alive.”
