City Parks Tackles Overgrown Grass in President Park After Delays



long and dangerous grass

Motorists driving on President and Boshoff roads in President Park can finally sigh relief after Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo cut the long and dangerous grass on the two roads. City Parks swiftly cut the grass after the paper reported on the issue in March. The almost 1.1m long grass created dangerous blind spots for motorists using these roads travelling from Rabie Ridge, Ivory Park, and Ebony Park to Midrand.

City Parks regional manager Dr Joseph Mbulaheni Ndou said the grass was cut on April 5. This swift move came less than a week after the article, Uncut grass creates a dangerous blind spot, [Week ending March 29] was published. Ndou said, “Any other pockets of grass that are remaining around President Park streets, City Parks has committed to attend to them before the end of May. Our focus for now is on key main arteries and streets where we have planted infant trees to ensure the survival of those trees.”

He added that in March, they cut grass on the following roads around the suburb: Republic, Dane, Moderation, Brand, Maltese Place, Worshond Close, and Fouché. A motorist, Karabo Makofane, said, “I think the cutting of grass was important and much needed for many motorists who are using these two roads regularly.” Ward 110 councillor Angie Mphaho said, “I responded to this after getting several complaints from residents and I am pleased that the grass has finally been cut.”
