Here’s What Your City Has Promised This Week…

Be First!

So, the City of Joburg and Joburg Roads Agency have made two BIG promises this week. Let’s see if they keep them!

Promise #1: City of Joburg promises to expedite the issuing of Driving License Cards.

The City had been experiencing delays in receiving and issuing driving license cards, with a MAJRO BACKLOG after the protracted strike.

“We are glad to announce that we have agreed on a solution to ensure that outstanding driving license cards are issues within SEVEN DAYS for those applications made between July to August 2018.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

  • Applicants are advised to visit the licensing centre where their applications were initially made, re- submit their eye –tests and update their details.
  • The Licensing Centre will then ensure that card licenses are ready for collection at that licensing centre within seven working days.
  • There are NO additional costs to be paid by the applicant. Eye sight test reports done by qualified opticians/ professionals are also accepted.
  • Priority Desks will be set up at ALL licensing centres so the qualifying applicants will not have to wait in the ordinary queues.

Promise #2: Johannesburg Roads Agency (JRA) commits to repairing all potholes after heavy Joburg downpours.

JRA’s managing director, Goodwill Mbatha said they are aware of a substantial number of roads that have deteriorated due to the heavy summer rainfalls.

THE CHALLENGE:

  • The road surface has to be DRY to effectively repair the potholes.
  • The process of road-surfacing drying approximately takes THREE DAYS after the last downpour.
  • The JRA will repair the potholes as soon as the road surface is dry.
