ROLAND Williams was late for an interview with local radio on Tuesday because he had underestimated the time it would take from the Lorraine area to the studio at the Boardwalk. He then had the interview while driving down the freeway, live on air – I hope he had a hands-free kit.
Among other things he said was that we, as ratepayers, had the right to complain and expect water, lights, potholes, etc to be fixed within a few days and there was a number to contact the metro (presumably 080-020-5050 – I never heard him mention it).
Well ha ha, Mr Williams, we have been complaining about lights out on the freeways for years, not days and even though there are cables, still no lights. There are potholes on the Settlers Way freeway just parallel to the centre of town near the Russell Road turn-off going both directions, why not fixed?
There are many other streets without lights and road markings that are almost invisible. Do we have to complain before something is fixed or is it someone's job to go out looking for the problems?
Not good enough, Mr Williams, and your eloquent answers do not convince us.
