Vaalwater roads not ‘car worthy’

The roads at Vaalwater have drastically deteriorated over the last few years and the heavy rains played a major role in their disrepair.

The majority of the roads in this Waterberg town consist of dirt roads, with the exception of a few major main roads. 

Residents have felt that the roads were not even car worthy, never mind cars having to be road worthy, but things are looking brighter for Vaalwater. 

“The roads at Vaalwater have always been neglected in the past, and the DA/FF+ coalition would like to catch up on the outstanding road maintenance,” said mayor Marlene Van Staden.

Two well-travelled dirt roads in the area namely Vrymansrus and Hermanusdorings have already been graded for travelling convenience. 

Contractors have already started with preparation on Mogol Street and on completion Waterberg, Rooibos and Park Streets will also be paved right through.

Van Staden would like members of the community to join their integrated development meetings where the town’s budget, tariffs and planned projects will be discussed. The first one will be held on Friday, 28 April, at 17:00 at the community hall in Lesideng, and the second on Friday, 5 May, in the “Boeresaal’ at Vaalwater.
