The recent heavy rains have caused more potholes across Cape Town.

In fact, the City says 2150 potholes were reported between the 1st of June and 9th of July.

The municipality’s Brett Herron has promised to fill all of them.

“The road repair teams are being dispatched to attend to the temporary repair of the potholes in the various areas. Part of the repair work includes a visual inspection of the roads that have been reported and adding those to our priority list,” says Herron.

He adds that “residents need to keep in mind that, due to practical reasons, especially in winter, we often do temporary repairs on potholes as a holding action until more favourable, drier weather conditions allow for more permanent repair.”
