End Of The Potholes Era: Download This App For A Quick Fix

Department of Transport is on a campaign to eradicate potholes in the country. The operation Vala Zonke (which means close them all) was launched by the minister of transport Fikile Mbalula yesterday 8 August. This is an application (app) that can be downloaded from the app stores to report and take pictures of potholes.

The issue of potholes is quite big and most of the time citizens don't know where to report them. There is also confusion as to who is responsible for which roads between national, provincial, and municipal governments.

With the help of this new app, reporting will be much easier and faster. People will be able to check status updates on reported potholes. According to government news, when a citizen reports potholes the location of the reporter will be taken and assigned to the relevant authority.

SANRAL will work together with municipalities, MECs and premiers to fix the potholes. The duration of the campaign is six months and SANRAL will monitor and assess the impact throughout. Road users are urged to download and report potholes so that they can be fixed.

Do you think this will help in fixing the country's roads? Let's engage on the comments section.
