City’s Plans to Curb Flooding
Due to heavy rains currently experienced country-wide, the City’s Department of Roads and Stormwater has identified Germiston, Thembisa, Kempton Park and Thokoza as flooding hot spots.
Head of Department for Roads and Stormwater Sizwe Cele said the rains have caused severe flooding across the City.
“We are on the ground inspecting recurring blockages in the flooding hotspots. We are monitoring low level bridges and unblocking stormwater channels and canals,” Cele said.
Despite the City’s strategies to mitigate potential disasters during the rainy season, communities are warned that flooding may still occur and road users are urged to obey road signs.
Cele pleaded with communities to use pedestrian crossing bridges and avoid crossing flooded roads.
