Residents challenge bridges contractor

This bridge was damaged during the recent rains This bridge was damaged during the recent rains

Phola - Residents are at it again about construction of bridges. A few months ago they complained about shoddy construction work of two bridges and demanded that the construction company responsible to stop working till Mbombela Municipality intervened.

After recent rain, one of the bridges was affected and is now at the verge of collapsing, and now the community members demand that the company should be permanently stopped because according to them, the contractor is clueless about the quality of work that should be dedicated to the bridge.

Itís us who are going to face problems at a later stage and we are not going to watch peopleís tax money go down the drain,î said community member, Morris Maluka.

Maluka said the municipality is not addressing this matter. ìThe issue of tender irregularities could be why they are not acting.î 

Mbombela Municipalityís spokesperson Joseph Ngala said: ìThe contractor is aware of the issue and when he was about to fix it, the residents stopped the project and their action is only going to delay the project and incur additional costs. We appreciate community policing, but the contractor needs a chance to rectify the mistakes. Mpumalanga News
