These live wires are on South Africa Drive on your way to the Cosmo City Multi-Purpose Hall. When you are past these live wires, children might be tempted to go in there and play, as they might be no adults to control the situation. As Johannesburg is a large area, aside from the JRA daily inspections and maintenance, you need to be the JRA’s eyes and ears by reporting issues that you notice. By working together every day we can make the mobility of our entire city even easier
These live-wires, potholes and traffic signals are not the only issues you can report. You may notice the deterioration of a road surface or require speedhumps installed in an area (which have to comply to South Road Traffic Signs and related manuals), there may be road signs that are skew or missing, lane markings faded, a manhole cover missing, an unfilled trench across a road. These are some of the multiple areas of road related infrastructure that we cover.
There are multiple channels that you can use to log a road infrastructure related fault in the City of Johannesburg
Log a fault online via the Johannesburg Roads Agency website and simply snap a picture of an issue on your mobile phone, choose the nature of the issue on the app, and use GPS to send through your location. As simple as that.
You can also call the customer contact centre, report the issue on:
+27(0) 11 298 5000
