In need of traffic lights

NNMAYOR. Sir, it was requested a while back that you look into the need for a robot at the intersection of Paterson and Hardwick. Paterson St gets busier by the day. It’s extremely dangerous to turn right out of Paterson and the delay causes a back up in the narrow road, including for drivers wanting to turn left. What were the findings of that assessment?

The traffic department will budget for it if it is necessary.


Thank u Mr Mayor for an excellent job so far. Sir, the fencing around the Fernwood sports field is disintergrating. This fencing was put up nearly 30 years ago and needs to be replaced. Vehicles are now driving into the ground and causing damage to the surface.

There are many upgrades coming to that field, however the fencing is not budgeted for.


Good Day. With all due respect for the wonderful job you are doing, this is something that am deeply concerned about. ‘The taxi’s moving into Paradise”. They are now parked on the verges and washing & repairing their vehicles on the road ( Sutherland going into Paradise). It is extremely difficult to check traffic,when turning into Sutherland as the view is obstructed. I also notice concrete walls being erected in that area. Is this going to be an extension of the taxi rank. Not Happy.

The newly fenced area will serve as a taxi holding area as per a provincial directive. We will then move ALL taxis into that holding area and no taxi will be allowed to operate on the street.
