Resident Robert Cairnduff shows the uneven pavement at the intersection of Alan Paton and Bulwer Roads.

A BROKEN pavement at the intersection of Bulwer and Alan Paton Roads has become a hazard to pedestrians.

Robert Cairnduff, a Bulwer resident, said he had been in contact with the municipality on umercours occasion with regard to the uneven pavement, but there had been no response.

“I have been complaining about the pavement since 2005, but nobody from the municipality has gotten back to me. The pavement is uneven and there are holes in it which are dangerous. I had a bad fall on the pavement recently. I’m not happy about this and feel there needs to be urgent action,” he said.

In response to queries by Berea Mail, eThekwini Head of Communications, Tozi Mthethwa, said: “The Roads and Stormwater Maintenance Unit has inspected the sidewalk and it is in fair condition. We have noted that there is an old trench which requires some repairs, as well as reinstatement around a water meter, replacement of a damaged bollard and some asphalt repairs. This work will be done once the fibre service contractor finishes work in the immediate vicinity.”
