Anger over bushy makeshift pathways

Furious resident, Nad Govender stands on the bushy makeshift pathway from Brayford leading to Sunford Medical Centre where most of the muggings are taking place.

Brayford Road residents are at their wits end over a spate of muggings which they claim is caused by unkempt and bushy pathways in the area.

The makeshift pathways, leading to the Phoenix Highway, are used by many workers in the mornings and afternoon. A resident, Nad Govender, said his request for the current and previous councillor to clear the pathways seems to have fallen on deaf ears.

“We have raised the issue of pathways on numerous occasions but nothing has been done. People have no option but to walk up the bushy pathway to get to the bus stop,” he said.

Darnell Lorenzo echoed Govender’s sentiments saying that they hope the issue of pathways in the area will be sorted out soon.

He raised that another issue they are faced with are reckless drivers on Brayford Road and called for the councillor to consider erecting speed calming measures on the road.

When reached for a comment, Cllr Tino Pillay dismissed claims of muggings taking place between Brayford and the Sunford Medical Centre and accused residents of making trivial complaints to the media instead of consulting with him first. Cllr Pillay said they are in the process of setting up a formal pathway between Brayford and Sunford Medical Centre.
