Yet another accident on the perilous R572 road in Limpopo

The R572 road between Swartwater and Alldays in the Blouberg Local Municipality has claimed yet another life after pleas to repair the road fell on deaf ears.

The FF Plus visited and inspected the R572 on 4 April and then sent an official letter to the MEC for Public Works, Roads and Infrastructure, Dickson Masemola, requesting that the poor condition of the road must be urgently addressed.

In the letter, the FF Plus also warned that the road may claim even more lives if it is not repaired soon.

The FF Plus's warning and fears were realised last week Friday when yet another fatal accident occurred and claimed the life of a man.

It is disappointing that the MEC did not even attempt to respond to the FF Plus's letter nor paid any attention to the matter.

Clearly, the ANC does not value road users' lives.

The FF Plus will continue to put pressure on the Department and MEC to prioritise repairs to the R572.
