31/01/2017: Ivory Park Protests: COJ engages Provincial Government to make roads safe
31 January 2017
As of yesterday, traffic calming measures have been put in place in Ivory Park in response to concerns raised by residents on Friday, 27 January.

In cooperation with the Gauteng Provincial Government, the following measures have been implemented:

 1. Speed calming strips which will be converted into speed humps next week;

2. Three-way stop road markings at the intersection of Republic Road and Angel Fish Drive; and

3. An oversized “High Accident Zone” road sign that has been erected.

In my capacity as MMC I have been assigned to head Region A in Johannesburg, and on Friday I was informed by Region A Director, Abigale Ndlovu, that community members had blockaded Republic Road and Angel fish Drive in Ivory Park to highlight dangerous road conditions.

I went to Ivory Park on Friday and was met by Councillor Masimela and PR Councilor Suddaby and together we engaged with the 300 community members. I explained to the community that the provincial road they had blockaded did not fall under the City of Johannesburg’s competency, but that I would try and assist them with their plea for safer roads.

I further requested that JMPD enhance their patrols in the area and clamp down on anyone driving dangerously.

I wish to extend my appreciation to the Gauteng Provincial Government for heeding this call and for ensuring that roads in Ivory Park will be safer in future.

The City of Johannesburg is committed to improving the conditions of our communities by providing the quality services our residents deserve.
